Trainhack is a hackathon that invites a group of creative nerds and enthusiasts on a train ride where the participants are tasked to create something that improves public transit. The event’s purpose is to spread knowledge of open data and APIs by creating a unique, challenging and above all fun event for the problem solvers and hackers in a wide range of communities.
To learn more about this years event, or previous events, continue reading below and be sure to grab a ticket before they run out. If you can’t make it to this years event or you’re interested in knowing more about what goes on before, during and after the event, be sure to sign up to our newsletter.
We start the event 18:00 on October 25th at Kollektivtrafikens Hus AB in Stockholm, and finish at the same location some time mid day on October 27th.
We are currently looking into the possibility of financial support for the hackers travel expenses.
Be sure to specify any food allergies or preferences while you purchase your ticket(s), that way we can make sure there is enough proper food for everyone.
If you already have a team, then you’re all set. If you don’t, well not to worry. Once you’ve signed up for the event you’ll get access to our Slack channel where you can form a team or join an existing one.
We will also host a meetup at the beginning of the event where people can get familiar with each other and give everyone a change to join a team before the hacking begins.
Of course if you’d like to work alone you are welcome to do so, but we definitely recommend you joining a team, if not simply for the great people you get to know and work with.
One of the requirements if you want to participate in the hackathon is that you use one or more of the following API’s in your hack.
These are some of the many awesome people that make Trainhack possible.
