The Hackathon Team
We are inviting hackers to join FTL and Social Sweethearts this March 2 and 3 for a frenzied 24 hours of designing, coding and making.
You'll have the opportunity to bring together all sorts of data and information using any and all tools the web has to offer in our “Social Infotainment Hackathon”. With the goal of creating a memorable user experience in the context of infotainment, this hackathon aims at bringing together 30 creative minds to build exciting visualizations and apps, using your favourite APIs.
Infotainment provides stories to the people with personalisation and emotionalism. It tries to search for thrilling, special and surprising essence of an event and makes an entertaining, exciting story out of it.
If you are male or female familiar with web services, data science and APIs, apply today to be a participant on March 2 and 3 with celebration to follow!
