Who doesn’t love hackathons? Hootsuite Engineer Alex Palcuie participated in December’s 2014 EU Hackathon in Brussels, Belgium. Alex shares his experiences below (originally posted on Blogspot) about making a difference, new friends, and 2nd place.
This month I participated in the EUHackathon 2014 in Brussels. Our challenge was to build tools that increased transparency and participation in the European Union.
My team built a site that helps the public understand the meeting timetable – with who, at what time, and where – of EU commissioners. We won second place, and had lots of fun.
