About this Event

What is Hopper?

Hopper is the smart way to book travel on your phone. Combining massive amounts of data and advanced machine learning algorithms, Hopper predicts and analyzes airfare and accommodation to save users money and enable them to travel more often. Hopper is a Montreal-founded company, with headquarters in the Mile-End.

What is TravelHacks?

TravelHacks is for you to let your creativity (and coding skills) free! Let's have fun with travel data. We want to provide you with access to the data and algorithms we work with everyday, as well as some other public-facing travel-related data, and let you fly with it (pun intended). Start thinking about all the cool, innovative, fun, funny or even weird ideas and things you could create using the travel data we provide. Think, data aggregation, data visualization, algorithms, AI, Machine Learning, anything you can come up with. Think outside the box, that's the kind of stuff we love.

Event Details:

Keep an eye on this space as we continue to update with the agenda, prizes, and other details in the months to come.

Taking place at the Hopper office, this event will kick off at 9:00 am and close at 9:00 pm. We've got you covered for the day's survival: food, drinks, and comfort.

Come alone, or in a team. We will start with idea pitching so you will be able to join a team, or work on your own ideas, depending on your preference.

To register, sign up using EventBrite and someone from Hopper will be in touch with further details as the event draws closer.
