Join Food+Tech Connect, Open Source Cities, and Gojee on December 4th for the inaugural Food+Tech Hackathon as part of the International Open Data Hackathon.  This open-source hacking event will bring together developers from all over the state to hack on real-world problems relating to how we grow, prepare, and interact with food. 

Featuring a talk on "Food Ontology and the Semantic Web," by Dominic Difranzo of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). 

Dominic is a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science at RPI's Tetherless World Constellation Lab.  His primary research is in the Data-gov Wiki Project to convert datasets from data.gov into Semantic formats and link them to the Link Open Data cloud.   Dominic's research has been presented at various tech symposiums including ISWC, AAAI, and WebSci.

What: 

Developers, designers, statisticians, urban farmers, public officials, and researchers will come together for a 12-hour hackathon that uses data to help citizens connect with their food. We will make sure your mind and belly are nourished throughout the day with delicious food and thought-provoking presentations.

Non-coders are encouraged to participate as well.

Please share ideas about what mashups, apps, visualizations, or websites you would like to do on the project wiki: http://foodhack.wikispaces.com/ The wiki also includes a page with a collection of data sets & APIs. (Please see the navigation on the left side).

All ideas MUST be added before the day of the Hackathon. Feel free to begin organizing groups before the event or just join a group day of.


Why: 

On December 4th citizens from around the world will be coming together at local hackathons to design, code, and create projects using open data.  The goal is to show support for and encourage governments around the world to adopt open data policies.
