Houston Hackathon 2022
September 17 @ 10:00 am - September 18 @ 11:59 pm CDT
Work on projects & learn about Houston! All skills welcomed!
To celebrate the National Civic Day of Hacking, we invite all people who want to make a difference in our region to join us at the annual Houston Hackathon! This is a “civic” hackathon, focused on ideating, designing, and developing both policy-based and tech solutions to some of Houston’s greatest challenges. Project stakeholders will be there from the city, local organizations, and Houston’s impact community!
We envision a more equitable, inclusive, and sustainable economy, where people are empowered with the skills, capacity, and resources they need to take action. We invite you to be a part of this vision by participating in this annual opportunity to develop systemic and transformative solutions for Houston – solutions that are rooted in local communities so that they are as diverse as Houston, and work for ALL of Houston.
The Houston Hackathon is an opportunity for people with different skills to collaborate on projects to improve life in Houston. Don’t think you’ve got what it takes to hang? That’s simply not true. We’ll help you get oriented.
