Maps solve problems. The problem here was a town with some very steep streets. People with disabilities prefer to avoid certain streets when parking or walking. How could a map design help visitors to Queenstown choose the best streets to use?
I was new to this city and looking to make connections, so what better opportunity than to make a positive contribution at the same time? I’d taken part in game jams before but hadn’t heard of a hackathon. Could I go without being a coder? Could we work on a project through the night and eat pizza?
