Hitchwiki hackathon @ Turkey

I have big plans for the winter! We’ll rent a flat from Turkey and rewrite some code running Hitchwiki — The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Hitchhiking the World.

Me and Rémi have been planning for a while to do big rewrite of Hitchwiki.org’s wiki and maps. Wiki is good old MediaWiki (which we want to keep) and Maps is custom PHP code-jungle written by me one summer years ago.

It’s finally time to rewrite it from the scratch and make something like this:

This is quite early preview and it’s missing many things such as ratings, but it gives the basic idea what we want to achieve.


We’re doing the rewrite this December 2014—January 2015 in Turkey. We will rent a house together for living and working.

To cover some costs we’re asking some donations from the community. Check it out and spread the word!
