Canadian Open Data Experience 2015
"Commerce: Business Opportunity" Category Winner - Sponsored by IBM
We participated in the CODE 2015 national hackathon and placed in the top 3 applications. The contest had over 140 apps submitted and over 1300 participants, the largest hackathon in the country. We developed a web app that visualizes government released farm big data. Once placing in the top 15 nationally, we were flown to Toronto to pitch our app to a panel of industry leaders. Our app was chosen as the winner of the "Commerce: Business Opportunity" category, our $5000 award & trophy presented by then industry minister Tony Clement.
- Farm Canada visualized federal government agriculture data in an intuitive web app.
