A hackathon is an event for software-related projects in which participants work intensively on ideas and development in a short period of time.With the support of Kyoto Prefecture and Kyoto City, the theme of this year's seminar was set up in conjunction with the "Open Data Seminar: Initiatives of Kyoto Prefecture and Kyoto City" ( ) held on May 24 at the Cyber Kyoto Institute, Kyoto Institute of Information Science.Not only students but also KCGI and KCG faculty members, who are also staff members of the Future Environment Lab, participated in this one-week project.The participants not only used open data, but also spent time thinking about open data that has not yet been released to the public and exploring new forms of provision, struggling with the wide range of topics but having a fulfilling time.On the last day, Mr. Kenjiro Higashi, Information Policy Division, Kyoto Prefecture, and Mr. Yugo Yoshikawa of Code for Kyoto*, who gave lectures at the Open Data Seminar, joined us for a presentation of development results by staff and students.

Future Environment Lab plans to hold various development-related events in the future.We hope you will all join us then!
