Plans and sponsors coming together for Data Hack Iceland 2017! #letsgetpersonal

We’re delighted to say more sponsors, challenges and prizes have been added to our Data Hack Iceland 2017 event, which is taking place on October 7 and 8 in Reykjavik.

And to make it even more inclusive, we are also offering a Virtual Challenge, meaning anyone from anywhere in the world can take part!

Attendees will get the first ever access to a public-facing API, which includes, financial and social data, to open a spectrum of new possibilities and innovative solutions.

The health data will cover prescriptions, vaccinations, medications, allergies, doctor appointments, hospital visits and medications administered during those visits.

Test financial data, from bank and credit card accounts will also be available, as well as social media data such as likes, posts and shares – and we hope all teams will be able to build something functional and exciting over the course of the weekend.

Prizes ranging from flights, tickets and accommodation for an entire team to Slush in Helsinki in November to Start Up Iceland 2018 tickets, smart devices, cash and Onymos licences are on offer for the winners of the various challenges – so get involved!
