There are a lot of hackathons happening around Europe and America. Some provide travel reimbursements, some don't. Nevertheless, it's useful to plan your trips and estimate flight costs. If only there was a web app for this...

What it does

It lets you view hackathons in Europe and/or elsewhere and find return plane tickets on those dates (outbound day before the hack, return on the same day as hack ends).

How we built it

We used an unofficial MLH API and the Skyscanner API. Everything is written in Python with Flask and the requests API.

What we learned

Registering a domain can be harder than expected.

What's next for Get Your Ass to a Hack!

Change the domain name.
