Open Data Hackathon Oxford

Open Data Hackathon is still happening! This international event aims to gather geeks around specific ideas giving them really only one day to develop at least a draft project. I had a bit hectic day today, but I did manage to visit and blog about the Oxford event on their dedicated site here.  What I personally like about it (apart from the great venue provided by White October and brilliant atmosphere of Oxford geeks) are the results:

    • Twitter geo sentiment – Who is happy (or otherwise) on Twitter based upon where they are and comparing different locations.
    • World Bank data – Using World Bank data so that someone can enter a location and find Word Bank projects or other projects if there is data for it, near them.

As you can see great stuff! Really happy that I could get involved at least this way, so thanks to the organisers for the invitation!
