Event Details

Get involved in your city! Open Chattanooga is hosting the Gig City's very own National Day of Civic Hacking Hack-a-thon.

What will we be doing? Citizens, software developers, entreprenuers, and government staff collaborating to solve challenges relevant to Chattanooga using publicly-released data, code, and technology.We’re looking for a cross section of participation to help us reach our goals:

 

  • Create a two-day environment for entrepreneurs, app developers, and programmers to create innovative apps and websites using open government data.

  • Bring together local government officials, municipal employees, experts, programmers, designers, citizens and journalists to share thoughts on the region's open data portal.

  • Foster communities of practice and advocacy on the role of the civic innovation, mobile communication, online information, and open data.
