Hackathon: Sherbrooke Wins the Provincial Final

A Sherbrooke team was crowned grand prize winner of Québec’s open data Hackathon, which included finalists from the regional competitions that took place earlier in Sherbrooke, Québec, and Montréal.

The winning team, which includes five Web developers—Jean-Francois Potvin, Joannie Laflamme, Fabien Bourdon, Alexandre Boucher, and Billy Braga—distinguished itself with its “Today” app, which suggests ideas for activities in Sherbrooke, Montréal, Québec, and Gatineau.
