On January 9, 2014, we posted a blog about the Canadian Open Data Experience (CODE), a 48-hour appathon taking place from February 28 – March 2, 2014. This event challenges coders and developers to turn federal government open data into useful apps and tools for Canadians.

We’re building on the success of the Great Canadian Appathon (GCA), which focuses on mobile games. The fourth GCA took place in January, and recently the competition’s top 15 teams were announced.

GCA posted this article: Congratulations to the Top 15 GCA Teams

We’re particularly excited because the top 15 teams are invited to participate in the Canadian Open Data Experience (CODE) at the event’s VIP hub in Toronto. Our congratulations go out to these talented developers and coders! We’re really looking forward to seeing how the top 15 GCA teams will build on their success – and how the other CODE competitors will challenge them.

Over 500 participants have already signed up for CODE. If you are interested in registering as well, visit the event organizer’s page. You can also find more details on our CODE page.
