Team BCDWDI at the Accountability Hack

On September 9th, we teamed up with Hannes Mühleisen (CWI) to participate in the first Accountability Hack in our home town. The event was organized by OpenState, a Dutch foundation which promotes an open and transparent government, and the Dutch Court of Audit which "checks that the government spends public funds and conducts policy as intended."

The goal of the hackathon was to create a working prototype of an application or website based on open (government) data which promotes greater transparency by aggregating multiple data sources and displaying the data in new ways.

As the only team out of 21 on this day, we chose to focus on data reported using the IATI standard.

After about 8 hours of designing, coding and preparing a working prototype...

...followed by a 2-minute pitch to the audience and the jury...

...we were rewarded with an encouragement prize!
