Congratulations to CityCampHNL Hackathon Teams

This past weekend (Jan 20-21) was monumental. The City & County of Honolulu held its first Hackathon aimed at building applications around City data. We had approximately 40 people participate with 6 teams presenting their prototypes. I want to personally thank all the people who spent their precious time to help made the first City Hackathon a resounding success.

Also a big Mahalo goes out to our judges who had the tough job of selecting winners:

  • Doug Chin – Managing Director of C&C Honolulu
  • Kiman Wong – General Manager, Wireless at Oceanic Time Warner Cable
  • Royce Jones – Regional Manager, ESRI
  • Gordon Bruce – CIO, C&C Honolulu
  • Yasmin Dar – Social Media Reporter, KITV 4

Although we did select 3 teams to be winners of cash prizes, all the teams did an excellent job. We encourage them all to keep working on their apps and get them into the marketplace. In the coming weeks stay tuned for more activities to build upon this environment for collaboration and open data.
