DataWorks, Delaware’s first civic hackathon, is almost here.
The event, which encourages people to build new solutions to make doing business in Delaware easier, has been months in the works. It’s on June 4 from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at 1313 Innovation in Wilmington and kicks off with a brainstorming session to identify possible projects to work on. Everyone is welcome, whether you’re a developer or not.
Organized by Open Data Delaware, DataWorks is part of the National Day of Civic Hacking. The hackathon builds on Delaware’s young civic hacking movement, which really started gaining steam in 2015.
