Perth wants to boost its tourism offerings and needs some help! They want to see whether some well developed apps could help the city and its wider area bring attractions, trails, events, culture, accommodation, eateries; and activities to life.
They are also interested in bringing the quirky and interesting aspects of the city together, using images and interesting user generated content through social media.
They have developed the website http://www.perthcity.co.uk/ and there is an app (http://www.mi-perthshire.co.uk/ ) but want some creative minds to take a fresh look at the city and surrounding area, generate new ideas that they could then develop into some new apps, open data or other projects.
As always we’re looking for coders, designers, data wranglers, service users and providers, bloggers – in fact anyone with an interest – to join us for a weekend of "idea-tion", creation, open data and rapid prototyping!
We’ll feed you, keep you stimulated, and provide good WiFi! You will leave with a sense of accomplishment, new skills and potentially new friends.
Join us on Sat 1st and Sun 2nd October 2016, at the University of Highlands and Islands Perth Campus, Crieff Road, Perth.
