Facebook Developer World HACK 2012, a series of one day Developer events that were held across the world saw a great response from developers. The event was held in 12 cities, starting off in Austin, TX, on August 23 and ended at Moscow, Russia on October 1st. The statistics are fascinating: more than 2000 developers attended and built 330 demos over 16,000 person hours. In the end there were 3 grand prize winners, who won a trip to the Facebook headquarters.
Culture24's SOAP API allows developers to import or query Culture24's events, resources, and venue information such as opening hours and address, among other types of data from their Direct Data Entry Database. The API has a single method, SearchRetrieve, by passing a SearchRetrieveRequest that returns a SearchRetrieveResponse in XML.
The internet is the perfect medium for matching supply with demand. You can find your next freelance job or, as Craigslist has been singled out for, find just about anything else (if you know the right euphemisms). Now, with Data Marketplace, you can request or provide datasets covering anything you can think of.
