National Day of Civic Hacking

The first National Day of Civic Hacking is June 1 and 2, 2013.  The event allows for civic hackers to collaboratively create, build, and invent tools using publicly-released data with the common goal of improving ones community through technology.  Examples of civic hacking include apps to report potholes to local street departments, and apps that provide up-to-date information on public transportations schedules.

It is the largest ever event that creates a public-private-people partnership across the country as hackers work with local, state, and federal governments, along with private organizations.  Check out the website to find an event in your area.
