Coopon has bagged 3rd Prize in a hackathon organized at International Conference on Cooperatives in the Changing World of Work.
On April 29, 30 and May 1,2018 we took part in the International Conference on Co-operatives in the Changing World of Work which also hosted a Coopathon (Cooperative Hackathon) for the first 2 days. The event took place at Indian Institute of Management, Kozhikode, Kerala.
The idea of the Coopathon is to pick a particular contemporary problem and integrate Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) and to come up with a sustainable solution with a co-operative model. We chose our focus area as Improving access to the basic goods and services and pitched the uauto model as an alternative to privatized, monopoly transport aggregation services.
We also demonstrated the capability of our Android client which can load OSM offline, route offline and do geocoding & reverse-geocoding offline too. We have been awarded 3rd prize with Rs. 10,000/-.
