At this hackathon we’ll be focusing on using new technology to solve old problems for the City of Spokane.
You will have the option of choosing from several issues facing the City or you can address one that you see. We will form teams and spend the weekend hacking the solution.
You are free to develop on any platform you wish, but we encourage the use of the technologies presented by our sponsors, such as 10gen’s MongoDB. We encourage all participants to take advantage of the great offers from the great companies investing in our community.
Prizes: Sponsored by GitHub
Prizes will be given to the top three teams. Your team will be judged on creativity, ability to execute your idea and quality of your code.
•Grand prize: 1 year of Silver plan
•Second prize: 1 year of Bronze plan
•Third place: 6 months of Bronze plan
More to come! Stay tuned!
