2014 National Day of Civic Hacking- Atlanta Edition

Calling hackers, designers, entrepreneurs, good Samaritans and anyone else who wants to help with a worthy cause!

The Technology Association of Georgia is teaming up with Code for Atlanta to organize the 2014 Atlanta National Day of Civic Hacking on May 30-31 at the Atlanta Community Food Bank.

Organized by Mathilde Piard of Cox Media Group, TAG’s Heather Miner and Luigi Montanez of Code for Atlanta, this year’s Atlanta hacking event will begin at 6 p.m. on May 30 and run through 5:30 p.m. the following day. The event is open to the public and free of charge. The schedule and registration form can be found here.

Part of a larger national movement, the Atlanta National Day of Civic Hacking is a civic hackathon bringing software developers, designers, data analysts, entrepreneurs, subject matter experts and concerned citizens together for a weekend of creative problem solving and collaboration.

Teams will have less than 24 hours to brainstorm, develop and build their solutions to a series of local challenges pitched by the Atlanta Community Food Bank using publicly available data, code and technology. The weekend will conclude with a pitch-off, with prizes awarded to the most innovative ideas. “The result will be a series of tangible, technology-based solutions to our most pressing food challenges, from websites and mobile apps to data visualizations and other types of innovative products and services.”

More than 100 programmers, marketers and designers participated in last year’s event in Atlanta, joining more than 11,000 hackers at 95 events in 83 US cities nationwide. The 2014 National Day of Civic Hacking will include 120 events in 102 cities worldwide.
