UK rail data to be available for national hack day

Developers participating in London’s national Hack Day competition will have access to live departure data from National Rail Enquiries (UK). “Since we began licensing apps a few years ago, we’ve dealt with numerous individual developers who have gone on to produce highly successful programs that are used more than a hundred thousand times a day,” said NRE chief executive Chris Scoggins. “But we’re always open to new ideas and keen to work with developers to bring to the market good ideas for apps that will make rail travel quicker and easier for the millions of people who catch a train every day.” Microsoft is sponsoring the June 11 event; developers will also have access to data from PayPal, Bing Maps, and Huddle.
