Houston Hackathon 2021

A virtual hackathon where tech and policy people collaborate and learn.

Work on projects & learn about Houston



All skills are welcome.

The Houston Hackathon is an opportunity for people with different skills to collaborate on projects to improve life in Houston.

Everyone is welcome: map nerds, data nerds, policy nerds, design nerds, programming nerds, etc.

Don't think you've got what it takes to hang? That's simply not true. We'll help you get oriented.
