NASA's International Space Apps Challenge comes to Toronto

The second annual International Space Apps Challenge has expanded to include Toronto. The two-day technology development "codeathon" that allows people around the world to work together "to address current challenges relevant to both space exploration and social need." 
Orchestrated by NASA, last year's event featured 26 locations, two of which were Canadian (Montreal and Vancouver) and one that took place on the International Space Station, and more than 2000 participants. Together, people created solutions to challenges that ranged from enhancing scientific understanding of organisms in space to constellation databases, webcams, and travel apps. Thirty-five solutions were nominated for global testing. Categories included software, open hardware, citizen science and data visualization. 
The site says, "Our goal is to provide a platform for people interested in space exploration to get together to work on amazing projects together."
This year's event will take place internationally and simultaneously on April 20-21. It has grown to include 50 locations. Interested participants can sign up to be notified when registration opens, which should be any day considering the site says this will be announced in early 2013.
