Local Transport South East Scotland Hackathon


Hi List,


This Local Transport hackathon is being supported by EDINA (long-time supporter of QGIS Scotland) and will involve the use of QGIS on the day. If you are interested in attending then there are 5 discounted places courtesy of EDINA, just use the code EDINA5 when booking your place for a £5 discount, first come first served!  Students will get a £20 discount by joining the waiting list on the website.


Tom Armitage from EDINA will be present on Friday helping all the participants with using QGIS and advising on sourcing and using spatial data.


Here are all the details, good luck if you decide to enter:




A room full of entrepreneurially minded data scientists and analysts, designers, software engineers and transport industry professionals spending 3 days and 3 nights side by side developing product prototypes to improve transport services within Scotland - sound good?


Product Forge is running a competitive transport hackathon at CodeBase in Edinburgh from Thursday 4th May until Sunday 7th.




Regardless of whether you already have an idea that you would like to prototype, or don't and would just like to make new connections, we invite you to come along and meet talented people with a shared interest in the future of Scottish transport.


Participants from a range of backgrounds and skills form teams to work on a product prototype with support from industry experts in the transport sector and the wider technology community.


Use this opportunity to bring your digital expertise to disrupt the transport industry in Scotland, expand your professional networks, fix a problem within the sector and even launch a new product or company!


All our participants receive mentoring, 10 free meals and 24 hour access to the venue, and the top ranking teams can access support to develop their concept further. Register now for an unforgettable adventure!
