GRANICUS IS partnering with CityCampSF to host a 24-hour Open Government Hackathon in San Francisco, December 10-11th at Granicus Headquarters. The event will bring together developers and other creative professionals to build applications that deliver valuable resources to the community and help governments run smarter, more transparent operations.
"CityCamp events focus on bringing together innovators from the technology, journalism, government and neighborhood leadership communities to help solve the tough issues facing our city and state," said Adriel Hampton, founder of Gov 2.0 Radio and lead organizer for CityCampSF.
The event is part of a broader policy movement across the country to embrace open data. In fact, California Senator Leland Yee has drafted a bill to ensure all electronic public records follow a structured data format.
