Join us at Work in Progress on June 1st for the National Day of Civic Hacking. Using publicly-released data, code and technology to solve challenges relevant to our neighborhoods, our cities, our states and our country!
Hack For Change
Organized by Vegas Hack - community driven hackathons + speaker events.


Vegas Hack is a one day event for the Las vegas innovation community to meet, hack and collaborate on ideas, both great and silly. Dig in and start coding!



National Day of Civic Hacking is a national event that will take place June 1-2, 2013, in cities across the nation. The event will bring together citizens, software developers, and entrepreneurs from all over the nation to collaboratively create, build, and invent new solutions using publicly-released data, code and technology to solve challenges relevant to our neighborhoods, our cities, our states and our country. National Day of Civic Hacking will provide citizens an opportunity to do what is most quintessentially American: roll up our sleeves, get involved and work together to improve our society.

The event will leverage the expertise and entrepreneurial spirit of those outside federal, state and local government to drive meaningful, technology-based solutions for federal, state and local government. It demonstrates what's possible when we all work together to strengthen our society and our lives. YOU can make a difference no matter where you live.
