My office (the NYC Office of Financial Empowerment) is hosting a hackathon in Dumbo March 2 and 3 to support the work of our financial counseling centers—which offer free one-on-one financial counseling and have helped tens of thousands of New Yorkers reduce their debt by millions of dollars and take control of their finances. We're calling on developers and designers to help us create an app that will empower New Yorkers to achieve their financial goals at the Centers.
We have great judges, prizes, free food and beer and a chance to help low-income NYers move forward financially! For more info about what we hope to accomplish at the hackathon, agenda, our judges, etc, check out our HackerLeague page here: https://www.hackerleague.org/hackathons/financial-empowerment-hackathon. Sign-ups are through our website, here: www.nyc.gov/ofehackathon. Developers of all levels are welcome to attend, and can form teams at the start of the event.
Hope to see you there!
