Apps for SEPTA, scheduled for the weekend of Oct. 8 and 9, is a hackathon “focused on building web, mobile or social applications” around the regional transit authority.

For $10, developers will play with local data and APIs from SEPTA, be well fed both days and get all the usual camaraderie of a weekend of coding around other smart, civic-minded hackers, says co-organizer and Voxeo Labs open gov nut Mark Headd. Representatives from SEPTA will be in attendance.

The hackathon will take place at the Devnuts Northern Liberties coworking space, which we recently updated you on. This is meant to be the first in a series of related hackathons. [Full Disclosure: Technically Philly is a sponsor of this event.]
