The Houston Hackathon is a "civic" hackathon to solve problems that affect the greater public—such as traffic information, voter registration, or recycling programs, just to name a few.
Anyone interested in improving Houston should join us. We're a vast—and welcoming—community of passionate people from all walks of life!
Not at all! Just bring your own energy, thinking cap, personal experience and individual expertise.
If you do want to brush up on coding skills, check out our workshops (also free) leading up to the hackathon.
Check out the Hackathon Project Ideas List to find a project you might like, or create your own project. We do encourage getting to know what you want ahead of time, since we only have 24 hours!
Nope, this is a free event, thanks to our fabulous partners!
YES! You just focus on using your brains, and we'll provide the fuel (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks will be available for free, thanks to our generous sponsors).
