Event Details

It’s Austin's second annual celebration of civic hacking! We’re excited to continue this young tradition of tapping into Austin’s hacker community to create tools and apps that amplify social action deep in the heart of Texas.

Are you a programmer, designer, developer, data wrangler, CIS professional, UX designer, information architect, copywriter, or general tech enthusiast? Let us connect you with with non-profits, government agencies, and civic leaders from your community for a weekend of action-packed, high-energy hacking, snacking, and good will.

Local civic and nonprofit leaders will present hack-ready pitches for the tools they need to fulfill their mission as agents of change in Austin. All you have to do is choose a challenge that fits your skill set, passions, and curiosity. Projects will address a wide variety of social and civic issues: anything from public transit to feeding the hungry, from helping protect the environment to promoting government transparency.

While you hack away for the public good, enjoy delicious, locally sourced meals and snacks, as well as the chance to win raffle prizes every day.

Let's roll up our sleeves and do some good.
