Red Hat Map Hack!

PIE: Portland Incubator Experiment
1227 NW Davis Street
Portland, OR 97209, US (map)
Public WiFi



Design, hack and field test locally focused civic geo mobile applications! Anyone at any skill level can come learn how to make mobile apps. We will design and code all night and then go out in the morning and field test the apps.

Examples of what will be built/improved:

  • CatMapper - geolocate cats: code, screenshot, video blog. You can learn how to fork CatMapper and repurpose it for other awesome use cases.
  • Geoloqi - build GPS enabled non-visual augmented reality apps! Have restaurants text message you their health inspection as you walk by them, leave geo-notes for your friends, or create GPS feeds for cats by giving them iPhones!
  • Walking Papers - Use paper and pencil to map your community! We could fork this project to work for other types of data collection

@maxogden will be in town for two days only. Come hack on crazy stuff with him!

Please RSVP via EventBrite</a so we can get an idea of how many people will be there. Food/drinks will be provided in some form or another!
