Dear all,

RIPE NCC [1] is organising our first RIPE Atlas [2] open data hackathon!

Dates: 27-28-29 March 2015 (Friday to Sunday)

How to apply: https://www.ripe.net/s/XUJy

In short: various groups will come together during the long weekend in
Amsterdam, to make new visualisations (or modify existing ones) based on
RIPE Atlas data, and to give that SW back to the community. [3]

We are inviting: programers, designers, operators, data-lovers, hackers,
students... help us spread the word!

Comcast is generously offering prizes and some coverage for travel
expenses for several people -- to be awarded/selected by a jury.

First deadline is already on 21st January. [4]

More information in the RIPE Labs article:

Hope to see you there!
