Make.03 hackathon: Data with a purpose

Tomorrow, Saturday 10 May, 2pm @ JMSC, HKU


As a longitudinal hackathon, Make.03 is more than a weekend sprints, as it plays out over a several weeks. This gives teams a wider selection of tools (e.g. data collection, meet stakeholders, crowd-source translation), and allows for more sustainable projects to be launched. Project teams will be proposed and formed at our launch event on 10 May, at the JMSC media lab at the University of Hong Kong. After the initial meet, we’ll provide a dedicated place and time so teams have at least one touch point per week. Teams will receive support in acquiring, wrangling and presenting data. Other than that, teams are self-organized and can meet up as frequently as they wish.
