It is time for all developers to join the event where coding meets big data from space! From 17-25 September 2018, the European Space Agency (ESA) invites 20 committed developers to its Space App Camp for a free event! It takes place in the beautiful setting and location of ESA’s Centre for Earth observation (EO) ESRIN, in Frascati, Italy, near Rome.
To make EO data and services accessible to a wide range of citizens, ESA’s Space App Camp invites developers from across Europe to exchange new ideas with like-minded people and tackle some of the world’s greatest challenges.
Participants learn about the many ways how space data can be utilised in mobile apps, using a dedicated API for EO data. Additionally, they will make contacts all over Europe and gain insights into how ESA operates.
There’s a special treat to boot, with ESA taking care of food & beverage, hotel and flight expenses. Interested developers can register online until 30 July 2018 as individuals or teams (of up to four people) at www.app-camp.eu/frascati.
The winner or winning teams will receive a EUR 2,500 cash prize and the opportunity to apply for further incubation at one of the ESA Business Incubation Centres (BIC’s).
