If someone here is a member of any coding groups could you please pass them on to them? Or anyone else with the skills and interest to help out? Events in San Francisco, Sao Paulo, Oxford, Exeter, Nairobi, Tokyo, Jakarta, Canberra and Melbourne. The two far flung locations are McMurdo Station and, of course, the ISS. A friend of mine in Vancouver, BC is trying to get a node started there as well--I will keep you posted on developments there.
From the site:
The International Space Apps Challenge is a 2-day technology development event during which citizens from around the world will work together to solve current challenges relevant to both space exploration and social need. It will provide the bridge between valuable space data and the energized and passionate technical development community.
