Gandi 舉辦第一屆城市域名黑客松 (.Taipei)


由臺北市政府與域名註冊商 Gandi.net 合作舉辦的黑客松 "Hackathon.TAIPEI" 已於上週圓滿落幕。黑客松從12月5日開始,共進行兩天,會場位於臺北市科技產業服務中心。此次共有10組參賽團隊齊聚一堂,使用 .TAIPEI (dot-Taipei) 域名打造與臺北市相關的專案。如同 .COM/.NET/.TW 及其他知名的網域名稱,.TAIPEI 是新的頂級域名,代表臺北市。

黑客松的評審來自於科技圈與臺北市政府。經過了兩天的 hacking 後,每組都交出了成果,並做了簡報。獲得第一名的專案是 "repARTee.TAIPEI",此專案的目的是要用來鼓勵藝術家們,使用者只要掃描每個作品的 QR Code,就可以透過此團隊的網站為該作品留下鼓勵的評論。使用者也可以直接造訪網站,發表評論。"repARTee.TAIPEI" 團隊的靈感來自於地下街,當人們經過展示了許多作品的地下街時,可能會想要留下鼓勵的文字給藝術家們。獲得第二名的專案是 "HaoChi.taipei",這是一個可讓使用者針對臺北市地區的餐廳所提供的各餐點類別,按「喜歡」、「不喜歡」、及撰寫評論的平台。使用者可以針對特定餐點評論,而不僅是餐廳而已。第三名則由 "Enter.taipei" 拿下,此專案利用臺北市的開放資料,提供使用者們近期的活動資訊,像是電影、演唱會、舞台劇等等。"Badboss.taipei" 則因具有創意性而獲得特別的獎項,這個網站可讓員工們檢舉壞老闆。不過,被檢舉的老闆也可以在此提供相關證據,為自己平反。

Hackathon.TAIPEI 是第一個以城市域名為主題的黑客松。許多有趣的專案從這個活動中誕生,這也代表臺北市、或與臺北市相關的網站,仍有許多可建立、發展、或是改善的地方。
