Hack the City is about using open data for a better urban and civic experience.

It's a hands-on event in 3 parts to use public data to test and prototype ideas, apps and products that can reveal something different about your city, or help people find out and engage more easily with the events, incidents and decisions that affects them.

  • Pre-Hack Social on Friday evening
  • Main Hack on Saturday (with awards at the end of the day)
  • After-Hack on Sunday to support those who want to take your product ideas forward

You can join in for any part of the weekend, but we're also interested in helping teams test out and shape ideas to apply for the [Open Data Institute Challenge Series //http://www.theodi.org/events/OpenDataChallengeSeries] (with a special interest in Crime and Justice data in this occasion).

This is a programme of competitions aimed to both stimulate projects and help startup enterprises using open data. On offer are three prizes worth £5k and an ultimate prize of up to £50k, along with an opportunity to enter their startup programme.
