Event Description

The annual Indy Civic Hackathon (now in its seventh year) is focused on strengthening our neighborhoods. In addition to city and state representation, this year’s sponsors include: AT&T Indiana, Salesforce, Carbonite, Level Up Development, and Metamor Systems.

Teams of 2-5 people brainstorm a solution to the challenge. Details about the challenge, data sets, and Q&A will be available on the HackerEarth platform for all at the start of the hackathon on August 13. Each team is asked for the most creative and innovative solution that they can build using any technology. At the end of the hackathon, teams present their solutions and are judged by technology and community representatives.

We know our communities are full of people and organizations doing good, such as youth groups offering yard clean ups. But these groups do not always have an easy way to publicize their services in their community. So often, these organizations and services do not get the voice that they deserve. Additionally, many residents do not know where to go for helpful services in their neighborhoods. The 2021 hackathon seeks to address these issues by creating an accessible and inclusive solution.
