Montréal Ouvert is thrilled to announce we have partnered with the City of Montreal, the Montreal Gazette, OpenFile and Hacks/Hackers to make this the best hackathon yet. Open data based applications have been a thundering success in Montréal. ZoneCone.ca has helped over 50 000 drivers navigate Montréal road construction, PatinerMontreal.ca has guided over 17 000 skaters to their favourite rinks, Resto-Net.ca has helped over 75 000 patrons find a clean restaurant and BudetPlateau has allowed more than 600 citizens create their version of the budget. Your application or idea could be the next big thing for Montrealers!

The city will also launch a great new data set: catalogues for all 43 municipal libraries!
All these lovely people attended Montréal-Ouvert Hackathon!
