Join us online in or person at the European Space Agency’s ECSAT centre in Harwell Campus (UK) for GEOSS/HACK 2018, where developers will compete to create data discovery and access tools that solve global challenges.
HOW IT WORKS
Participants will have 30 hours to create an open-source data discovery or access application based on a challenge announced at the start of the hackathon.
The challenge will be announced at the start of the hackathon, and will centre around real data needs and globally relevant environmental themes focused on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
In addition to exposure and promotion to some of the biggest organisations and companies in the industry, our sponsors and organizers will soon announce the exciting prizes for the winners. There's also the possibility to apply for further funding and support, see below "What happens after".
All programming languages and application formats will be accepted, provided they are open source and the code is shared in Github. Participants will produce a 2 minute video explaining their entries for the judges to review.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER?
The European Space Agency offers a wide range of financial, technical and business support to help you launch your idea. Just fill in this questionnaire and send it to email@example.com, we'll get back to you with some feedback and the next steps.
We have limited seats available for the in person Hackathon, so book your tickets soon!
