The City of Helsinki is looking for new ways to support the developers to utilize open data in order to create digital services for the citizens. Open Helsinki Hack at Home program is launched on the 14 of June 2013, and it encourages developers to create useful applications. The underlying themes of the program are transparency of the city decision-making and enabling better feedback from the citizens to the civil servants.
The program focuses on relevant themes for the active citizen. These themes emphasize the openness of the city decision-making and solutions that enable feedback between the citizens and the City of Helsinki. In addition, the program calls for applications that enable tourists to experience Helsinki in a unique way.
Open Helsinki – Hack at Home program is open to everyone interested in developing digital services for the City of Helsinki. Anyone can participate by bringing an idea to solve a challenge – or contributing personal skills for others to use. All applications created in the Open Helsinki – Hack at Home program automatically participate in the Apps4Finland competition that offers cash prizes and visibility for good applications and their authors.
Register and submit your initial app idea before June 28th! at http://openhelsinki.hackathome.com/
