Boulder Civic Hackfest is a two day hackathon and design event bringing the best of Boulder together for the civic good in celebration of National Day of Civic Hacking. Using open data and technologies we will select problems affecting our communities and prototype solutions to them throughout the weekend.
Check out the projects completed at the event as of 06/02/2013:
First, any community member is welcome to register and attend. More specifically, if you are a subject matter expert, please come represent a specific civic issue to the group and help ensure the effectiveness of solutions. Designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and innovators are especially invited to help build prototypes to the problems presented.
Anyone can pitch an idea or problem. From there, small groups form to brainstorm solutions and start tackling the issue with design and code. Publicly accessible data sets will be used to support the solutions. At the end of two days, each group will present the result of their collaboration.
There will be a competitive element to the weekend with prizes available to the top teams. More details will be provided as the format is finalized.
