[email protected] final will take place November 21st in Barcelona! In this event we present the 10 finalists of the Open Data Tourism Hack-at-home, together with the finalists and winners of the other Opencities challenges. During the 4-month process, more than 300 developers have been involved in the creation of civic apps for the tourism in the cities.
The new Open Data Tourism Hack at home, part of the Open Cities project, brings together two important themes of the smart city – open data and sensor networks – and uses them to help European cities find new ways to manage the big challenges and benefits of tourism today.
The winner app of the Open Data Tourism Hack-at-home will win €3000 and a nomination for the Mobile Premier Awards 2014, the international reference prizes in the apps world, which will take place in Barcelona, during the Mobile World Congress.
