THack Sydney – Travel problems to be solved and new APIs added

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!

THack Sydney begins with a webinar on Tuesday 2 April and ends over the course of Wednesday and Thursday (10 and 11 April) the following week.

For this particular event we decided to shake things up a bit – rather than allowing developers free reign over what to build, we have created four industry problems.

To compete in THack, teams (or individuals) must attempt one of the problems listed below.

1. Trains, planes and automobiles

  • Create a tool, feature or product which allows a user to find out how to reach a destination from door-to-door (multi-modal) and what they can do when they get there.

2. Friend on the road

  • Using mobile as the interface, develop a service to assist users on the days they actually travel.

3. Inspire me!

  • Images, videos and more, showcase what Australia has to offer the tourist and how they might get there.

4. Ultimo Hack

  • Use every API on offer and see what comes out the other side!

For more details of the event and how to take part, contact Tnooz editor Kevin May. Commercial opportunities are available by contacting our sales team.
