Africa’s largest Hack Boot Camp for Trade Transparency

RLabs, Department for International Development (DFID) and Mxit Reach will be hosting the first Trade Transparency Project hackers’ boot camp in Cape Town, South Africa on the 3 – 5 September 2012. The aim is to provide consumers with information on how trade-related costs and trade barriers such as tariffs affect them by raising the prices of the goods they buy.

Cash prizes for the best ideas, marketing and support will be on offer as the best techies, developers, designers, creatives and activists will gather to create visualisations, interactive tools, mobile, web and social applications to illustrate the impact of trade barriers on the prices of everyday products.
