On November 12 + 13, 2011, a bunch of developers and designers will be getting together at Digital Harbor High School in downtown Baltimore for an Education Hack Day, a 2-day hackathon focused on building apps to help teachers and schools.
All event info can be found on our website: http://EducationHackDay.org.
Please see http://educationhackday.org/sponsor/
We are looking for school teachers and education professionals to submit ideas for the classroom over at our Teacher's Wish List. (ie. "I wish I could schedule parent/teacher conferences easier.") We'll keep track of what teacher suggested what idea and if your idea (or a close variation) is picked, you can win some prizes for your classroom!
If you'd like to be a part of the weekend but don't develop or design, please feel free to join us at our Sunday Demo!
Head over to our Developer's Discussion to suggest your own app ideas and vote on others. Also, your discussion will help us determine which API's we will try and make available to you.
Demos will start on Sunday at 4pm and last 60 – 90 minutes. It's completely open to the public but registration is requested. Invite your friends and family to come see what you've built all weekend at Digital Harbor High.
Stay tuned to our website for upcoming information like Prizes and a Schedule.
