Portland's premier civic hackathon, bringing together software engineers and policymakers to change education.

Who & What HackPDX is a 12 hour hackathon with a theme of public education. We’re inviting software developers & graphic designers to come work on solutions to some really interesting problems. The event is totally free, but you should register soon - spots are filling up!

Why Public education is slow to innovate, and we’ve found that Portland lacks hackathons. We want to change this. Come share ideas, free food, and code for a twelve-hour Saturday event.

How Bring a computer and anything else you’ll need for twelve hours of hacking. You’ll get $500 in credit for Google’s Cloud Platform, along with an index of APIs and other tools. Mentors from our sponsors will be on hand to provide advice and assistance.

When & Where New Relic is hosting us at their newly-expanded beautiful Portland office, at 111 SW 5th Ave #2900. The event will run from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM August 30th, 2014.

Thanks to our sponsors: Sendgrid, Orchestrate.io, Twilio, New Relic, Cloudability, Simple, Crowd Compass, Treehouse, HackOregon, Lane Powell, PPS, and Zapproved.
