The second annual Outside Hacks was hosted this year by Weebly and featured over a hundred developers. Everyone at Outside Hacks set out to improve the festival experience for fans and artists. Looking at the list of projects, I think it was a success!
Even before the hack day started Paul Lamere put together a JSON file of the Outside Lands lineup. This gave developers a jump-start on development by mapping artist names to the IDs of the sponsoring APIs.
RideShare won the overall prize at Outside Hacks with their application that helped fans leaving Outside Lands efficiently share their cars on the trip back home.
We awarded AfterLands the prize for best use of the Rdio API. AfterLands helps you keep the party going by showing you a map of the hottest after-parties. On your way to the party, you can view what music's playing and suggest the music at the parties.
For pictures from the event check out the official recap, Gracenote's recap, and Gracenote's photos.
