You can help build the civic tech community in Sacramento; no tech experience is necessary. Here’s how!
If you haven’t heard already, where have you been!? We’re exactly one week away from the #Hack4Sac Kickoff event held at the Sac County Board of Supervisors Chambers. Teams will have 6 weeks to use data from the Sacramento County Open Data Portal to uncover opportunities and build solutions that will improve our region. A total of $10,000 in cash prizes is up for grabs, as well as the chance to do something great for our city. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited about the bright future Sacramento has ahead. We have passionate volunteers and community leaders working to make a lasting impact here. We have government officials that are excited about using technology to enhance civil services. We even have a super easy way for you to register. All we need now is you; your input, your enthusiasm, your creativity.
It’s no secret that we have transitioned into an age of technology. We are now able to instantly access and share information from almost anywhere in the world. A large number of businesses have either evolved and adapted to use technology, or have closed their doors. Devices like fax machines and even home phone are being used less and less. Its now possible to live, learn, work and shop from the comfort of you own couch if you so choose. The bottom line is, technology has the power to make communication faster, easier, and more efficient.
