2021 Winnipeg Open Data Hackathon
March 6 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
In celebration of International Open Data Day (https://opendataday.org), DecisionWorks Consulting (https://decisionworks.ca), together with support from The City Of Winnipeg (https://data.winnipeg.ca) and Launch Coworking (https://launchcoworking.ca), are hosting the 2021 Winnipeg Open Data Hackathon on Saturday, March 6, 2021.
This year’s event will be a little different than past years in that this hackathon will be conducted virtually. A virtual platform will be used to provide general event attendance, presentations and group brainstorming. Once teams are formed, the platform will allow each team to meet in separate breakout sessions while they work on their projects.
The theme this year will be Public Works, with a wide variety of sub-themes possible including snow removal, roadworks, lane and road closures, grass cutting in parks, and mosquito spraying.
Each attendee will be receiving a food certificate they can use to purchase lunch during the day and have it delivered.
In addition, prizes will be awarded to the top 3 teams, as chosen by input from peers, sponsors and coordinators.
Additionally, a very special one-time opportunity will be given to the winning team to represent the open data community by being invited to participate in the City of Winnipeg’s Open Data Steering Committee.
