We proudly joined the Smart Country {hacks} 24h hackathon organised by Hackerstolz as part of the BITKOM e.V. Smart Country Convention in Berlin on November 22-24.

The overall goal of the hackathon was to develop digital solutions for Smart Cities in Germany by using data from all the available APIs. One of the major topics was of course improving mobility in cities – a perfect match for our platform. That’s why we sponsored the event and our dev team was happy to support in finding cool new solutions. We gave the participants access to the whole suite of our Caruso APIs which they used for developing services to improve and digitalise smart city managemet & mobility.

We were overwhelmed by the innovative athmosphere during the two days and because of the qualitative feedback of the developers we could take notes on how to further improve our data and service APIs as well as their documentation. Thanks to Hackerstolz, the hackathon was very well organised. The participants were provided with everything they need to make it through the night and proudly presented their ideas the next afternoon. Beyond the hackathon formalities the BITKOM Smart Country Convention offered us with great opportunities to meet & exchange with other start-ups which is always a great thing.
