The import·io Hackathon Begins!
It’s day one of our internal hackathon. The rules are simple: Two teams have one week to come up with an amazing product that in some way uses data obtained using import·io. Each day we’ll update you on our progress – feel free to try out the products and vote for your favourite! And now….
LET THE BATTLE BEGIN!
In the Teal Corner….
Introducing the next craze in silly phone games – like logo quiz, but for news headlines. The app surfaces you funny headlines and you have to choose which News Organization printed it. Get them all right to move on to the next level, race against the clock, challenge your friends and share your score on social media.
In the Pink Corner….
Introducing a real-time news feed to the industries you care about. We bring in the news from as many sources as you need, streamline the content and serve it up to you on a customised timeline. Now you can quickly find, read, digest and share the news that matters to you and your business.
Team Doug: Bea, Bamford, Alex, Dan, Arantxa, Ian and Jen
Team Owen: Nick, Chris, Michael, Sally, Niru, Ignacio and Shahroz
Create your own Hackathon project over the Christmas holidays and submit them to us by Jan 10th. The finalists will be given a chance to pitch their idea in front of an investor and the winners will receive some awesome prizes!
