Thanks Philadelphia, for being so excited about civic hacking, our event is now sold out!
*We may have some spots opening up later, so please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll put you on the waiting list. Also, feel free to send any ideas, or tweet them to #hackphilly!*
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 http://appsforsepta.org/ Use #hackphilly to shout out and follow ideas leading up to the event!
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.
