Foursquare Global Hackathon

This coming weekend is the Foursquare Global Hackathon – happening all over the world at the same time, it should be a great event!

Foursquare logoThere’s a world of possibility for mashing up the Foursquare API with AMEEconnect to add a layer of environmental data to your hacks. Take a look at our developer intro document, and watch our screencast to see how easy it is. We’ll be on hand to answer questions via or @ameedev during the weekend in case you need any help.

Just a few ideas of things you could have a go at that AMEE could help with:

  • estimate carbon footprint of travel between venues
  • let people add details on the carbon footprint of a venue
  • get green badges, maybe integrated with other services
  • add eco venues and categories
  • is it possible to work out how much energy your home wastes while you’re not there?
  • could you check in to a mode of transport? (a real “I’m on a boat“)

As a special bonus, if you’re attending the event and using AMEEconnect, enter the code 4SQHACK in the organisation field when you sign up, and we’ll give you access to all our premium content as well as the standard stuff; that’s over 8 million items!

And finally, if you’re in London, AMEE are hosting the local hack event all weekend in our office. If you’re in the area, why not come along?
