Spocode is a 24-hour civic hackathon that is focused on open data, government accountability, and building tools and resources that benefit the general public.
The city has donated a great location at the Spokane Fire Center right next to Spokane Community College, with good working wifi and plenty of space to get our groove on.

The main component of this event is civic impact. Each project will be judged on its potential to positively solve city-wide issues.
At this event we want to see your skills. If you overcame some major development issues in your hack, make sure you include that in your presentation.
This is not the classroom. We are not concerned with what you could create, we are concerned with what you did create. You are expected to present a live working demo of your product.
