At this month’s LA Spatial meetup, hosted at our HQ in West Hollywood, we announced the following challenge to developers in the room — and we want to extend the same challenge to you. We hope you all participate and can’t wait to see what you build!
LocaLove: Built by LA for Its Own Good – Deadline: 10/31
Take any available API and create an application that will immediately benefit the city of Los Angeles, its businesses, its visitors or its residents. The application must be mobile and can run on any platform you choose.
The criteria for winning this challenge will be a combination of factors including:
-Relevance to Los Angeles
-Perceived benefit to Los Angeles and/or its constituents
-Creative use, mix and mashing of available APIs
-UX and design
Prizes – winner takes all!
-Annual memberships to KCRW, LACMA, MOCA and Cinefamily
-Lunch with CityGrid CEO/CTO to get direct feedback on your application
UPDATE: We will be hosting a coding night, here at CityGrid HQ, in conjunction with the next LA Spatial meetup on 9/22. Join us and fellow like-minded developers to work on your app and bounce ideas off one another. Hope to see you! And can’t wait to see what you all eventually submit.
