This is the second Alameda County Apps Challenge, following the first one held on December 8th, 2012 at Castro Valley library.

Then you can use technology to improve your local government. Tap into your community pride and your activist spirit, bring your ideas and your technological know-how and take the Challenge. Showcase your own ideas or collaborate with others in your community to see how quickly and accurately you can design and create a software app or concept that addresses a community need in Alameda County.
Join your peer designers, software developers, and innovators and participate in a day of fun, food, and technology. Using Alameda County datasets, Build, Design, Create, and Share new concepts and apps that will benefit local education and literacy, improve civic engagement, provide support for neighborhood watches / crime prevention, and help support services and activities for seniors.
