Code for DC Shutdown Hackathon for Furloughed Feds & Friends
Monday, October 14, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
Code for DC's Shutdown Hackathon
Code for DC is hosting a mini-hackathon for furloughed employees, civic hackers, and others to help work on local community projects.
Due to the recent government shutdown roughly 800,000 "non-essential" federal workers have been furloughed. Many of these federal employees are using this time to volunteer to help their local community. Code for DC wants to use this unfortunate event as an opportunity to bring furloughed employees and others together to work on civic hacking related projects. All are welcomed to join in. Feel free to bring your own project or to work on an existing project. Check out the Code for DC website for a list of on-going projects.
Let's use this furlough time to do something awesome!
