Apps for Philly Sustainability: Unconference and Hackathon

October 16, 2015 @ 9:30 am - October 18, 2015 @ 5:00 pm

Join us for our last signature event of 2015–a weekend-long rapid prototyping event innovating sustainability in Philly.

Apps for Philly Sustainability is part hackathon and part unconference. We’re excited to be included in this year’s State of Young Philadelphia organized by Young Involved Philadelphia. Though often convoluted, in this context sustainability is thought of broadly. Whether it’s physical, social, political, economic, or otherwise ours is a city of legacy infrastructures. To thrive in the 21st century, Philadelphia must adapt and evolve. We believe that the best solutions are collaborative and sustainable.

Friday: Unconference (ticketed)

Friday: Community Needs Assessment (FREE!)

Saturday/Sunday: Hackathon

The unconference and hackathon are ticketed events. You can purchase either or both on SquadUp.

Code itself might have a limited ability to directly impact these issues, but code can help collect, organize, distribute, and present knowledge. The right knowledge, the right place, and the right time can change everything. Let’s bring technologists and engaged citizens together to build the tools for Philly’s 21st century sustainability infrastructure.

This signature Code for Philly hackathon brings together technologists, community organizers, entrepreneurs/innovators and sustainability enthusiasts/experts/activists for a weekend-long rapid prototyping session. Ideas are expected to reach the proof-of-concept stage, but more than a end-product the hackathon is concerned with the process.
