Solving Real Problems, Helping Real People.
The event will focus on building technical solutions, but it is not about the technology; it’s about solving the problems. Yes, it is an event that will draw technical experts, but the goal is to produce a workable solution that improves daily life for real people in our communities. The technical solutions we build will be built for a purpose, not just as an exercise.
On May 31st & June 1st, We Gather
We’ll come together prepared to put our heads together to solve problems in our community. The event will be hosted in Bangor & Portland, but the work we do can make an impact at the municipal, regional, state, or national level.
Build A Prototype
A Civic Hack Day is an event that focuses on solving real problems in our communities with technology. A solution could take the form of a new web page or mobile application. It could be making new municipal data available to the public online. A solution could even take the form of some new hardware device. There’s no restriction on the implementation of the solution, as long as it effectively meets a need.
