PhillyJS Message Board › Calling All Civic Hackers!
Wanted to make everyone in this group aware of an ongoing developer contest sponsored by Google.
The City of Philadelphia is partnering with Google on the Google Places API Developer Challenge, calling on developers to build apps that use the Places API and city open data to support the PhillyRising Initiative.
More details here - http://codeforamerica...
We're holding a series of hack nights at Devnuts in Northern Liberties, leading up to the deadline for submissions (10/31), to help people who have questions or just want to hang with other folks while building their app.
3 winning teams will score a trip to Google I/O to hang with the engineers who built the Places API and to showcase their app to the crowd at the event!
Hope some of the folks will consider entering - it would be awesome if we had a winner from Philly. Come join us on Tuesdays this month for hack night and help spread the word.
