Could Cape Town be more awesome?
Did you know
that more than 70% of people visiting Cape Town visit the same ten tourist
sites? We know there's more to the City, but can we help people find new things
to do and new places to see?
the City of Cape Town, CiTi will host a hackathon from 27 – 29 October 2017 at
the Khayelitsha Bandwidth Barn. The City's Open Data Hackathon will challenge
teams to solve real problems faced by Cape Town's tourism industry.
Using a range of data
available on the City of Cape Town's Open Data Portal as well
as provided specifically for this event, teams will grapple with the brief: “Design a digital product that
improves the discoverability of unique experiences for tourists in Cape Town.”
These days, most tourists are planning their own itineraries using online
tools. We can attract more people to different parts of Cape Town
and support more small business and "last
mile" providers by making information easier for digital travellers
If you have tech and data skills, design skills, or just a passion for the
tourism industry, we want you! Join us for a weekend of smart people,
fun-fuelled problem-solving, and fantastic spot prizes.
