Tnooz is launching the travel industry’s first official Hack event, taking place in London in the coming weeks and culminating at the Travel Technology Europe show.
Developers, startups and the curious are invited to take part in the first THack, on this occasion a two-part initiative aimed at bringing together folk from the around the travel and tech industries to come up with fresh ideas for products, tools or widgets using different APIs, some openly available and others via specially arranged access for THack.
THack London will be split into two parts:
The first element will take place on the afternoon of Thursday 27 January at TechHub in London, hosted by Expedia UK. Those attending will share ideas, learn more about the APIs available and, most importantly, have a great opportunity to meet fellow developers and others from around the industry.
Over the course of the next ten days, developers will be asked to produce a product, widget or mashup using the APIs made available or others on the web (Google Maps, Twitter, Facebook, etc).
The second part will give developers the chance to showcase their idea at the ¬†Travel Technology Europe event in London on Tuesday 8 February, where Tnooz has a dedicated presentation slot for THack.
The best idea developed in the wider THack will be featured on Tnooz and also receive a prize.
Tnooz is inviting developers and any travel companies that wish to join THack to
