There were more hackathons than ever this year in Switzerland, generating feedback loops and a reuse of Open Government Data - help us to support the community with archival efforts: a fresh Challenge is waiting for you behind today's Advent Calendar door.

As you can see in Google Trends, the topics of Open Data and Hackathons are closely aligned in search queries.

We are exporting the data of our community events to an open data package. Today we are updating it with fresh data from 2023 events. In the GitHub Issues page we are looking for your suggestions for improving this dataset and putting it to use. Some ideas are from an initial meeting with hackathon organizers at Hack:Org:X v.1, e.g.:

  • Talking to Opendata.swiss & BAR about preservation of this dataset on OGD platforms
  • Ask some probing data question, like which topics/challenges are more/less sustained
  • See which hackathon challenges echo across a series of events ...

We are grateful for all the contributions made by our community over the years, and would like to use this dataset to acknowledge the impact of your work.


This is a Data Package created from data exported using the Dribdat API.

Inside the root folder you can find scripts used to generate the data files, and a datapackage.json used for quality control.

Please check the Issues, leave us any questions there or in our forum.
