What are you doing on Friday, July 22nd at 1:20pm CT? You could be knocking back brewskis with our CEO, Nick Ducoff at Wrigley Field. He's got prime tickets to the Cubs vs. Astros game and wants to take one lucky & talented developer out to the ball game. He'll treat you to all the beer and peanuts you can handle - oh yeah!
All you've got to do is hack together an application or data visualization using at least one of our data sets or APIs and submit it to us by Wednesday, July 20th at 5pm CT. We'll pick our favorite and let you know if you're our winner by Thursday, July 21st!
Don't live in Chicago, but still want to play along? We'll send every person who enters a handful of starter decks of Startup: The Hackering, Infochimps' infamous SXSW card game and some sweet stickers.
Here's some of our favorite data sets and APIs we'd recommend starting off with:
