Meegathon Competition at MeeGo Summit Finland



Meegathon was a hacker type of competition, much like a hack-a-thon that took place last month at the MeeGo Summit Finland
The idea was that teams had 24 hours to code a project for the summit

The purpose of the competition is to produce new open innovative software or improvements to existing open source projects. The judges will expect the projects to be targeted at MeeGo but if the project is useful for the larger open source community – even better.

This video below is the teams presenting their projects to the audience and judges with the final winner being chosen on Innovation, Openness, Transparency and On-site hacking being counted as a bonus. It is very shaky as it was taken without a tripod. I won’t be doing that again in the future.

The Winning software was Drone Taxi
