Hack-SMC: Web and mobile app Hack-a-thon contest!

The County of San Mateo is holding its second Hack-a-thon May 21, 2016, called "Hack-SMC." The goal is to use open data and technology to create web and mobile apps that improve our communities.  The event will be held at GSV Labs in Redwood City, which as you may know is essentially a tech-savvy startup incubator. They have plenty of space, a stage, fast WiFi, and even a curvy slide that people can use to quickly get down to the first floor (because you never know when you’ll need that!). 

Folks should register by May 1 to be eligible for door prizes. The fee is $15.00 (for under 18 -- $20 for 19 and up), which covers breakfast, lunch, a t-shirt, and giveaway items.
