The Cleanweb Hackathon’s 2nd edition is coming to NYC. The hackathon serves to demonstrate the impact of applying information technology to resource constraints.
“CleanWeb” is a category of clean technology that leverages the capability of the internet, social media, and mobile technologies to address resource constraints. The goal is to organize a competition to build apps and hacks exploiting new sustainable business models while leveraging the mobile and social web. The hackathon is an interesting concept that builds on creative thinking and information technology. The inaugural event in San Francisco drew over 100 participants and resulted in 14 cleanweb applications. And now the competition is coming to NYC!
The Cleanweb Hackathon concluded last night with 14 teams taking center-stage to showcase mobile and web apps that could help us, in their own small ways, manage resources more efficiently. The teams worked through the weekend and developed some “awesome” that creator Sunil Paul, pointed out as one of the most important features of cleanweb. How do you identify “cleanweb”? Acording to Sunil, it will demonstrate-
#1 Extensive use of information technology (duh)
#2 Makes things more efficient; allows better use of resources
#3 Makes life more AWESOME!
That’s exactly what the teams set out to do. Developers, designers, and business folks collaborating on building apps as diverse as ones that bring together backyard urban farmers (GROmunity) or a green life cycle analysis tool that small businesses and artisans can use to analyse and put on their green products (Greenly).
The first ever Cleanweb Hackathon opened in San Francisco with over 175 registrants for 100 seats. I call that resounding!! Sunil Paul, the brainchild behind the Hackathon, founding director of Spring Ventures and avid clean-tech proponent was excited as he blogged live from the event:
“Writing live from @PariSOMA at the Cleanweb Hackathon. Super exciting the level of engagement. We are SOLD OUT. Over 175 registrants for 100 seats. About a third are developers. The balance are business and UIUX folks. In the next 24 hours, we’re hoping to see some interesting apps come out of this hackathon.”
The hacking begun yesterday and will continue today till 3pm pacific time, with winners being announced tonight. Who is going to win over $5,000 worth of prizes and bragging rights to the first-ever clean tech app competition? Stay tuned for the results!
The CleanWeb Hackathon is an upcoming gathering (September 10 & 11th) in San Francisco to demonstrate the impact of applying information technology to resource constraints. The goal is to organize a competition to build apps and hacks exploiting new sustainable business models while leveraging the mobile and social web. The hackathon is an interesting concept that builds on creative thinking and information technology.
The hackathon challenge attendees on what they can do in 24 hours with utility, transport and smart grid datasets that might just change the world just a little bit. At the end of a marathon hack session, teams will demo their apps and hacks for the audience and a group of select judges. It’s a fantastic opportunity to develop something great, learn about CleanWeb and meet like minds.
