Try HERE Maps

Create a free API key to build location-aware apps and services.

Get Started

I am coming to you live from the Angelhack Global Hackathon Series in Berlin, where despite the glorious weather quite a few teams have come together at Spielfeld DigitalHub to commit to their code .

While it’s still a few hours until pitches begin, I’ve already seen some great hacks with the HERE location platform, including a safety app using the Geofencing API and an app that helps people volunteer to pick up trash using gamification and the Waypoint Sequence API (this is something Berlin urgently needs).

One of the teams is trying to turn singing into maps. No, really. I can’t wait to see that pitch. Their debugging process sounds interesting to say the least. Another team has a member who’s a dreadlocks-wearing poodle . He’s definitely a good boy and possibly a full stack developer.

Let’s just say I’m having a good time. If you want to have a good time, too, I have some great news for you. We will also be sponsoring and attending the #AH10 events in Singapore on June 17–18 and in Seattle on July 15–16. If that’s not enough, we’re also giving away prizes if you use our APIs at these hackathons. Check out this lil’ guy!

Have a look at the event pages for Singapore and Seattle for details and tickets.

If you want to know what the HERE location platform can do for you before the events, head on over to, check out our documentation and sign up for our 90-day freetrial .

Happy hacking and we hope to see you in Singapore and Seattle soon!
