Submit, suggest, and discuss ideas for the hackathon at neighborland.com/atxhackathon
That’s why if you are in Austin September 8th, you should join the Code for America crew and Neighborland’s Matthew Hall for Code Across Austin, a civic hackathon being held at Conjunctured in East Austin. This is the second hackathon in Austin sponsored by Code for America, which has been working in Austin throughout 2012 developing the inspiring disaster-preparedness application Prepared.ly. This time around, you’ll have the chance to work with the newly-released Neighborland API, take part in the Google Places Challenge with their Places API use datasets from the City of Austin, and more.
Code for America fellows Emily Wright Moore, Aurelio Tinio, and Joe Merante are using Neighborland to ask everyone “What should we build at the Code Across Austin hackathon?“. You can see ideas generated in response to the question below, via the API-enabled Neighborland Embed below:
Whether you are able to join the fun on Saturday or not, you have the power to share your ideas to volunteers that are going to commit their time, energy and talent to creating something that makes Austin a better place.
