Another city, another travel hackathon – with a team from Flight Centre creating a mobile service to help travellers on the road and another team helping festival goers organise their trip.
There is just over a week to go until the official start online of the latest in our series of THack events for developers – this time taking place in Sydney, Australia!
We’ve seen what developers can do in London, Las Vegas, Singapore, San Francisco and Boston – now it’s time to see what their Australian counterparts can muster.
What can a single developer pull together with a handful of APIs, a creative mind and a touch of tongue-in-check? Yes, it’s the Traveling Gnome (not the roaming kind!).
More creativity and masses of hard work from developers as a teams from Skyscanner and Flocations brought a new idea to planning business trips and also capturing the best travel reviews.
Online gaming and cruise trips – you couldn’t make it up?! Well, a team at Embark.at did for its entry in the recent THack @ SFO in San Francisco.
The winning product in the category for three developers or more at THack @ SFO last week came via Amadeus, using a dizzying array of APIs to create TVote.

Another hack from the recent THack @ SFO event in San Francisco, this time featuring the product created by a development team from Travelport.
Foodies or wine lovers will often design their latest jaunt based specifically on the best spots to eat and drink – but few travel sites reverse engineer the search process.
One of the participants at last week’s THack @ SFO was DataArt, pulling together APIs from Vayant, Travelport and LocalGuiding to create BendMyTrip.
