House Holding Wonk-A-Thon

THE HOUSE of Representatives will host the first ever "Congressional Facebook Hackathon" this Wednesday, December 7, from 3:30 to 7:30 PM to discuss how the public can get better access to congressional information. The event offers an opportunity for technologists and policy wonks to talk about and collaborate on improving how congressional information is made available to the public.

The gathering will start with short opening presentations by the House of Representatives on its open data initiatives and Facebook on its latest platform updates. Afterward, participants will break out into discussion groups, focusing on legislative data/workflow, constituent correspondence, casework and press/public relations.
