SAKE Lab member Fotis Kokkoras and final year student Thanos Pigadas participated in a hackathon event on open data exploitation, organized by Innovathens. They presented the web version of fuelGR, a family of applications built around the fuelGR API, which in turn is fed with prices of the Greek fuel market, provided by http://www.fuelprices.gr/. The application ranked at first place and received exceptional comments.
Congratulations go to all fuelGR team members, including Dimitris Ntemos (final year student / Win 8 fuelGR) and Tasos Theodosiou (graduate / Windows Phone fuelGR).
