Here at Ticketmaster we opened up our platform last year with flexible and powerful APIs that allow developers to benefit from the huge scale of data from events it operates across the globe.
Using these APIs, companies like Facebook and Spotify have integrated with Ticketmaster’s platform and inventory. Since then, we’ve run 11 hackathons across the planet to engage with developer communities, and our next stop is Belgrade.
The theme of our Hackathon is “event discovery”. We encourage everyone to use our APIs and mash them up with other APIs to create cool and meaningful experiences for fans.
In Belgrade, we will team up with our local development partner Bakson LTD and ICT Hub (local centre for technology development) for a 24-hour Hackathon – yes, that means coding through the night! Senior members of the Ticketmaster tech team will attend to mentor the coders and judge the Hackathon. There are cash prizes up for grabs, and a bunch of Ticketmaster swag for everyone.
Teams and solo coders are welcome – for more details and to sign up please head here.
All images shown here are from our last Hackathon in June when we partnered with TfL during London Tech Week.
