Code the City 3

We had a great weekend at Code the City 3, it was an interesting and productive event all round.

The first day kicked off with a good warm up up session, to get us thinking.  Then it opened into groups to tackle various issues, new an previous.  I worked with Rob (@ormiret), Sadiq (@yayasadiq) and Stuart (@stuart_foy) on a FOI search engine.  This involved screen-scrapers to collect data from Scottish council websites, and a front-end interface.  The skill sets in the team were a good fit, Rob doing the backend and OCR, Stuart doing UI and visual design, Sadiq writing scrapers in Python and myself coding up the font-end.

Some outcomes...

All-in-all it was a great event, friendly and creative atmosphere and we saw some really cool things made.

Big thanks to Ian, Bruce, Steven and Andrew for organising the event.

Also, thanks to Eventifier, Aberdeen City Council, Fifth Ring and Aberdeen Uni for support and sponsorship.

This time code the city was taking the theme of Community Information.
