Hackday 2011 – London Borough Smackdown

Back on March 26th I was invited to a government hackday by Meg and her uni mates. The aim of the day was to get into groups and make use of government data to produce some application, ranging from useful tools, visualisations of data or making fun things with government data. We had 6 hours! I love a challenge 🙂

We decided to create to a Top Trumps game based on crime statistics in London Boroughs and so “London Borough Smackdown” was born:


And what’s more it won “Most Aesthetically Pleasing” award of the day! It’s designed for Android and Iphones, but will work on ipads and webkit browsers (chrome & webkit)

Big thanks to Meg Morigami, Andrea Jezovit and Maria Font who worked on this with me. I have no design skills what so ever, so this is more their award than anything to do with me.
