CT Civic Hackathon
Saturday, June 1, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
New Haven, CT
On the weekend of June 1-2, more than forty cities across the nation will host events for the National Day of Civic Hacking. Join the Connecticut edition of this united effort connecting citizens and government, in a partnership focused on improving people’s daily lives through technology.
CT Civic Hack Day will be a 12-hour event that brings together techies, entrepreneurs, do-gooders, activists and others like you to collaboratively create, build, and invent tools using publicly-available data channels.
Do I have to be a programmer?! No, there are many non-technical roles on a hackathon project team.
