HackTheCity fosters tech-for-good ideas in Swansea

Calling all innovators and creators from across South Wales!

The finale HackTheCity event for 2018 is fast approaching. Hosted by TechHub Founder, Paul Harwood, in the relaxed setting of TechHub Lounge, Swansea. Mulled wine and mince pies served as a festive standard!

This is your opportunity to be part of a dedicated group of passionate individuals, solving every-day city problems, using cutting-edge tech.

To take part in the event, all you need do is turn up with ideas or problems - you don’t need any prior knowledge of technology or software development.

The group hack on these ideas and everyone then gets to pitch their idea to an audience of techies, entrepreneurs and creatives. Once the pitches are done, the audience will choose a winner. The awarded group will get the chance to return to TechHub the following month, to talk about their development of the idea.

TechHub Community Manger, Sarah Fogel noted, “We’re here to encourage collaboration and solution generation, as well as discussing all the things that make us proud of our city – the people, the tech, the culture and the innovation – things that make it such a unique place.”

We'll be joined by Chris Cundhill, who created, "The City Platform" - An open API for developers to innovate using city data to benefit residents. Chris will be talking us through the development of the concept, following a meeting with Cllr Rob Stewart, of Swansea Council.

To make sure you don't miss your opportunity to develop tech-for-good ideas, join us on 10th December, and become an integral part of the positive regeneration for Swansea!
