Summit Awesome has always been about bringing people of all abilities and ages from the web industry together, via meet-ups and hackathons across England. This time they're offering both, along with an evening of food, and frolics with some of the smartest upcoming designers and developers in the UK. Clever minds, cool hacks (maybe even potential products), great food, and a generous bar tab. We think they're onto a winner. The hackathon is returning again to the great city of Manchester, easily accessible by train the venue sits five minutes away from Piccadilly Station. People of any and all ability are welcome, we thrive on helping people pick up connections, new portfolio pieces and experience. Speak to any of the previous attendees; they all loved it.

Hackathon for Cuba will gather technology experts and programmers to devise innovative solutions aimed at strengthening communications and information access in Cuba. The event is organized by Roots of Hope with support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The hackathon aims to ease the limitations of living in Cuba, often called the “island of the disconnected,” due to its communication challenges. Problems with Internet connectivity, costly service, censorship and the lowest cellphone penetration rate in the Western Hemisphere regularly limit information access to Cubans. The hackathon will bring together a mix of technologists and thought leaders familiar with information barriers in Cuba to develop smartphone applications that address these problems. Participants will then present their ideas to a panel of judges. Prizes will be awarded for the most innovative and useful apps. The event is open to the public. “There is a great demand in Cuba for applications that work without access to the Internet and technological tools that improve the everyday life of Cuban people,” said Natalia Martinez, chief innovation and technology officer at Roots of Hope. “Roots of Hope has long recognized that the impact of technology in Cuba cannot be underestimated and we are excited to launch what we hope will be a continued conversation about this.” “Events like these spark momentum for more innovation in Miami by bringing the community together to solve real-world problems,” said Matt Haggman, Knight Foundation program director for Miami. The event will kick off with a reception at 7 p.m. EST on Jan. 31 at The LAB Miami in Wynwood, starting with a presentation on the current state of technology and digital access in Cuba. The hackathon begins at 9 a.m. EST on Saturday, Feb. 1. The event is free and open to the public. To register please visit, www.rootsofhope.org/hack. About Roots of Hope Roots of Hope (Raíces de Esperanza) is a not-for-profit network of more than 4,000 students and young professionals who work together to empower youth in Cuba to become the authors of their own future through connection, technology, and exchange.

Canada’s federal government has an abundance of data and now it’s asking Canadian software programmers and innovators to figure out how to best use it. In Canada’s first country-wide open data hackathon, dubbed CODE for Canadian Open Data Experience, Ottawa is calling on Canada’s computing and design talent to use the government’s open data to create apps that will help Canadians. “From air and water quality monitoring, to border wait times, to information on permanent residency applications, crime statistics and vehicle recalls, Open Data has the potential to drive social, political, and economic change,” Tony Clement, president of the Treasury Board of Canada said in a letter to CODE participants. “This data is a treasure trove of information that offers endless possibilities for researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs. “CODE is part of our Government’s broader commitment to be at the forefront of the global Open Data movement. I truly believe that Open Data is one of the most valuable natural resources of the 21st century, and to fully capitalize on this resource, governments need to be 100 per cent committed to getting their data into the hands of entrepreneurs, as well as other data enthusiasts in schools and society.” The 48-hour hackathon, which starts at 5 pm on February 28 and ends at 5 pm March 2, is being hosted by Toronto’s XMG Studio Inc. Participants can attend the CODE VIP Hub in Toronto on Feb. 28th or take part virtually – from homes, schools, universities and coffee shops across Canada. The government’s Open Data portal was launched last year at http://data.gc.ca. There is a $25,000 grand prize for CODE, donated by OpenText, with a $5,000 second prize and $1,000 for third place. If you wouldn’t know computer code from a security code, don’t worry, this hackathon could be made for you. There’s a matchmaking tool on the CODE web site so if you have an idea but you need to pull together a team to make it happen, you can create one online. Fifteen teams will be chosen to pitch their apps to a industry experts and investors who will decide on the winners. The winning applications could be released by their creators or in co-operation with a third party.

The world's largest student-run hackathon will be coming to Detroit for the first time this weekend. MHacks III is third in a series of hackathons. The inaugural MHacks, a 36-hour, Red Bull-fueled coding competition that kicked off last February at the University of Michigan, featured about 500 high school and college students working in small teams to build, or "hack," websites, mobile applications and other software programs, said Lucy Zhao, an executive member of MPowered Entrepreneurship, one of two UM student organizations that created the event. Zhao said MHacks II drew more than 1,200 national and international students to Michigan Stadium in September. The upcoming MHacks III, which will take place Friday through Sunday at The Qube on Woodward Avenue, will also have around 1,200 participants with a few traveling from as far as Poland to compete, she said. "We wanted to move it to Detroit to show the city is more than just the bankruptcy headlines, and to encourage the talented individuals to stay and work in the city," said Zhao. The event is being sponsored by Detroit-based businesses, including Quicken Loans and Opportunity Detroit, she said. Zhao said most students enjoy MHacks because it allows them to take the coding skills they learn in school and use them to produce a physical product such as the self-sorting, single-stream recycling and trash receptacle that took first prize in the September competition. The grand prize for winning this weekend's hackathon is $5,000, she said.
