Open Institute and M-Power would like to jointly invite developers out there to the Open Duka Hackathon.
We are happy to invite you to the second Open Duka Hackathon on the 22nd and 23rd of November 2014 at Jaffery Institute of Professional Studies. The event will be open to Software and Web Developers, who will either make use of the Open Duka API or add features to the Open Duka Platform.
Open Duka has been our labor of love for the past 2 years to map companies, contracts, court cases to people and visualise their connections. For us, this intel -understanding these connections – is important for citizens to strengthen how they interact with their immediate world.
Since we started the Open Duka journey, we have come a long way and the platform has gone through a number of iterations.
At the hackathon we want to open it up to the wider community to shape its growth through new datasets and new (and improved) features. We hope that developers will find uses for the API and existing features to build amazing tools on Open Duka.
We hope journalists and CSO practitioners will learn to use Open Duka to tell more incisive stories and advocate more factually.
Come join us for a weekend of coding, great conversations and lots of fun in an outdoor Hackday!! We are looking forward to seeing you. Space is limited so please RSVP here to reserve your spot.
