Hacking for the greater good: HackPDX(schools) takes place August 30

It’s not secret. Portland likes its hacking. It’s often focused on specific languages or technologies. But every once in a while, there’s a great opportunity to do some hacking for the betterment of our schools and towns. Such is the case with HackPDX(schools), this Saturday.

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

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!

The project, headed up by Colby Aley, will run from 10AM until 10PM, Saturday, August 30, 2014.

So if you’re in town for Labor Day—or if you’re a student looking to wring the last few hours out of that summer break—visit HackPDX(schools) for more information.

Can’t make it? Make sure to follow @HackPDX on Twitter to stay up-to-date on their next event.
