Urban Data Challenge: Hackathon

In honor of International Open Data Day, join us for an event of hacking and sharing as part of the Urban Data Challenge, an online, data visualization competition using transportation feeds from three cities— San Francisco, Geneva, and Zurich.

Join swissnex San Francisco, GAFFTA, the Bay Area d3.js User Group and the data community to exchange ideas, find teammates, code, draw, and design in a laid-back atmosphere—pizza included!

Technical workshops help you make the most of the available data sets.

So bring your brains, laptops,and creative hats, and let’s get hacking to envision better urban mobility!
