Back in June, I was involved with organizing a Hackathon, the 2nd in the ‘Inspiring Innovation through Hackathons’ series I’ve been leading with Enterprise Saint John. (See an earlier post for a recap of the first one here).
This Hackathon was focused around ‘Civic Hacking’, which can be defined as, “the process of collaboration with others to envision and create solutions using publicly-available data, code and technology relevant to their city or neighbourhood”.
The event was a ton of fun and a great success by all accounts. You can read all about it in a recap post that I created on the other blog I maintain here: http://truegrowthhackathons.com/2014/06/24/true-growth-2-0-civic-hackathon-event-recap/ and/or on the guest post I wrote for Enterprise Saint John’s True Growth SJ blog, here: http://truegrowthsj.com/2014/06/24/true-growth-2-0-civic-hackathon-event-recap
Adding an extra element of coolness to this event, or at least the post-event communications, was a video that one of my co-organizers put together with some footage he took during the event. Check it out!
