Prague Hacks 2015, dubbed “Prague Hacks: Improving City Life,” was a non-profit event; the largest of its kind, and was held at the popular open working space Node5 as well as being live-streamed online.

The hackathon was organized in partnership with Otakar Motejla Foundation.

We have used Prague 7 and Prague 8 school data to start with.
