Whatever – 1st place – Open Data Challenge by Digital Lëtzebuerg

The “Whatever” app aims at improving the quality of life of people in Luxembourg. You can connect to it through Facebook - but the future plan foresee an implementation on Google +, Google Now and Apple Siri - and it will provide plethora of information to its users in a natural way. Imagine you are looking for a parking lot in Luxembourg. Ask “Whatever” from your Facebook messenger to get the name of the nearest parking lot, the way to get there and the number of open parking spots! You can also ask for information about the bus schedule, the nearest bike station or the opening hours of the supermarket nearby. “Whatever” was the favorite of the Hackathon’s jury for its user-friendly aspect. This app will be free and should be available shortly after Facebook’s review.

The team met on the spot and used the 24 hours given for the competition extremely judiciously. Because the entire team is coming with backend development experience, the collaboration went smoothly and efficiently. This project is the perfect example of hard work team spirit. This Hackathon will also go down in history as an awesome and fun adventure/experience!
