Open.UP-Course: Open Data - Open University (Password: UP-hackt)
(access is also possible for non-university members)
08.10. - 10.10.2021
From October 8th-10th 2021 a Hackathon will be organised by the Institute of Computer Science of the University of Potsdam (UP), supported by the ONE.UP-team. The title of the hackathon is “Open Data – Open University”. Applications will be prototypically developed to enable students to participate in university processes, provide insights into the university and/or facilitate student life. Students who are interested in participating can register via following Open.UP course: Open Data – Open University (Password: UP-hackt).

Citizen participation in public interest processes is gaining more and more attention. Central to this is the desire for an open and transparent society in which no data monopolies are created, because to everyone same opportunities are offered. This requires that public authorities and institutions create and maintain a standardised access point (API) to the collected data. The complexity of this concern becomes clear when one considers the multitude of disciplines that deal with the topic. Here is a small extract:
This is where we would like to join in with the hackathon "Open Data - Open University". The aim of this fast-moving form of work is to create and work on scenarios in which open data from the UP can be used to solve everyday problems. There are no limits to creativity in the implementation of problem solving: web apps, mobile apps, programmes, dashboard components, etc. can be created that process the data from the interfaces of the challenges and make it accessible for users.
