NEWSFLASH << Whilst we load the full problem statements on to this site you can find the short summary of the six that will ‘get pitched’ here http://liquidit.blogspot.com/2012/11/cape-town-problem-statements.html. Happy hacking! >> END
From 1-2 December civic technologists will team up with subject matter experts in an intensive 48 hour marathon to find innovative solutions to challenges facing the sanitation sector.
The Sanitation Hackathon emerges out of the recognition that mobile phones, the internet and open data are creating new entry points to make sanitation services more transparent, inclusive and participatory while forging new connections between the government, its citizens and the private sector.
Solutions developed over the weekend hackathon may be any kind of software application, be it for the web, a personal computer, a mobile handheld device, console, SMS, or any software platform broadly available to the public.
Participation is free. Judging of the best projects and ideas developed during the hackathon will take place at 3pm on Sunday, with winners announced, and prizes awarded, at 4pm.
Thanks to the Bandwidth Barn who’ve agreed to host and to Webtickets who’ve agreed to co-sponsor the event. You can download the agenda of the event here.
