Rochester Civic Hackathon

 

MEET. HACK. ROC!

 

 
Interested in meeting with like-minded movers and shakers in Rochester? Roc-Hacks is a hackathon open for rapid prototypers in Rochester. Participate today!

RocDev and NextCorps are combining forces to create a space for local hackers to get together to build something for our local community. This event will take place the first four Wednesday evenings (6p-9p) in August. If you can't make the second or third night because finding a sitter is hard or that concert you've been waiting all year for is happening, don't worry about it. But we do want you to attend the first and fourth to meet people, build your team, and present for judging. Food will be provided.

What should you build? We're looking for something to help out our community. Use these data sources to inspire you or make your hackathon about creating your own data source.
