This is a 24-hr advocacy hack-a-thon with a theme of liberty.
Put together a team, use your Rails skills to hack on various data sources, and develop a winning application.
The judges will be awarding $5,000 in cash to the top teams. Our judging panel consists of angel investors, venture capitalists, members of the PayPal mafia, and the CIO of Palo Alto. Our data partners are Facebook, OpenGov, OpenSecrets, SendHub, and several others. This is the first hack-a-thon of its kind to combine voter files, commercial data, and public data.
