Web Conference for teams
On September 9th there will be a joint global videoconference where Pablo Rodríguez (Director of Telefonica I+D Labs) and Ferran Adrià (Founder and Director of elBulli) as well as the HackingBullipedia Contest team will be at your disposal to answer all the questions you may have about the contest and your participation.
From October 30th on, if you and your team are registered, you will be able to upload your proposals. Don’t forget that Bullipedia is a “Work in progress” so, look at it in a critical and creative fashion and work on your proposal both using what already exists and what should exist as data or knowledge. Maybe your proposal is precisely to work on what you think is still missing from Bullipedia.
An idea is just an idea, but a prototype shows a little more of what you really can do and how feasible it may be. So prototype as much as you need to get your proposal in good shape. You will have time until October 30th but you will receive as much feedback as the HackingBullipedia Support Team can give you all along.
Upload your proposal
BEFORE October 30th 12am (midnight, Barcelona Time), upload:
- a video clip (no more than 3 minutes) where you give the main motivations and dimensions of your proposal
- a short document (PDF, preferably) where you can expand on the what, why, how, when, and where of your proposal.
The HackingBullipedia Support Team is composed of professionals of Telefónica I+D, elBulliFoundation and La Mandarina de Newton who are at your disposal to find answers to your doubts. They will be on your side for all the time you are prototyping your idea. Come to us with your doubts and we will try to get the best expert to answer them.
