Hack for Pasadena is two-days of open-sourced talks and hands-on problem solving, to re-imagine the way the web, applications, technology, and community participation will shape the future of the City of Pasadena. Hack for Pasadena brings together the tech community with businesses, nonprofits, academia and city officials to work together to solve complex social problems through technology innovation. 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 a workable solution that improves the daily life for real people in our community.
The event is open to anyone, 16 years and older. You need to bring your gear (e.g. laptop, tablet), skills, ideas, and enthusiasm for civic change. Come with a collaborative, team-focused mindset. Whether you are a back-end person and code in Ruby/PHP/.NET or a designer and work with Illustrator, a student, or a data hack you are invited to attend this event. Designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and innovators are especially invited to help build prototypes to the problems. Every group needs a good balance of talent and your development skills are needed.
