Professional hackathon for the tech industry

Four municipalities challenged the tech industry to a hackathon to come up with green, sustainable solutions for their citizens.

Over a periode of three weeks the teams produced solutions ranging from measuring pH levels and chalking rivers for fishermen, to means of visualising air quality.

- Inviting professionals to a hackathon is a new approach for our cities, said Årstein Skjæveland from Gjesdal municipality. - But we need to think fresh and challenge ourselves to come up with the best solutions for our citizens, he added.

Skjæveland sat in the jury alongside his colleagues from the cities of Stavanger, Sandnes and Sola.
