Announcing the Gentse Feesten app

Since Friday July 15th, the city of Ghent is providing open data of the Gentse Feesten events. To celebrate this, the iSoc students decided to code an HTML5 application for smartphones. With this app, you can look up easily what events are going on or starting soon, close to where you are.

Because the Gentse Feesten started on July16th, the iSoc students tried to get the app functionable as soon as possible. On Friday evening, the first version was already online at, and over the weekend it was further developed.

In the following video, you can see what the Hackerspace looked like during the making of the Gentse Feesten app.
