Purdue IronHacks is an 8-week class that combines active learning and app development with a real world open data competition. It was designed to make hackers familiar with open data released by federal agencies and corporation and aims to trigger user-centered design of data-driven interfaces with graphs and maps that support end-user decision making. During the 5-stage iterative virtual competition, students utilize open data to create novel and useful online applications (apps) for citizens in areas such as housing, healthcare, etc. While students are engaging in an active learning process, their apps are being evaluated using automated techniques and expert judgement. Real time and targeted feedback accelerate their learning process as well as improve their programing skills and their ability to hack complex problems with open data and open standards. Attend the ceremony and find out who will walk away with the coolest prizes! As of today, more than 500 students have hacked in parallel virtually around the globe.
