Our premium student skills development event for code & design students in the programme is Hackfest, a 2 day app-building challenge for teams of SoT2017 students. They’re supported by industry mentors, and the challenge this year was to use an API or dataset, and build something cool in a weekend, e.g. a web/mobile app or data visualisation.

Here’s the profile of one of the teams from our Wellington Web Hackfest, held at Flux Federation on the 12th & 13th August 2017:

Team Gramworthy

Team: Emma (Designer), MJ, Junlong, Aran, Samuel (Developers); Sam (Mentor)

App Name: Gramworthy

What does it do? Polls Instagram’s API to find the most popular locations in the surrounding area and displays them to the user. This allow people, mainly travelling millennials, to explore the location that they are in.

What tools did you use to build it? Instagram API; Oauth2; Leaflet; Loremflickr; HTML; CSS; JS; Ruby; Sinatra; inDesign; Google Slides
