Announcing our first hackathon of the year!
Spots are limited, so get your (free) tickets now: http://codeforamerica.ticketleap.com/codeacrossamerica2012/
In a civic hackathon, we collaboratively build software that matters to our city, and other cities too. People who know and love technology (software developers, designers, students, etc.) come together with people who know and love urban issues (city officials, local organizations, community members and leaders).
Anyone can pitch an idea or problem, and small groups form to brainstorm solutions and start writing code. See what happened at another local hackathon last fall, Apps for SEPTA
Coffee and muffins start at 9am, and the official kickoff is at 9:30. Demos and prizes (including a spiffy Code for America track jacket) at 5pm.
