Operation Code: NYC hosts the Holiday Hackathon 2018 with MilSpouse Coders and Code.gov on December 7, 6pm - December 8, 8pm.
This is a nationwide hackathon to help transitioning military, veterans, military spouses, and our civic hacker allies continue service by making external contributions to America’s Code, made available through Code.gov.
Participants will form teams and create pull requests against a curated set of issues from repositories indexed on Code.gov. Winners will be judged on code quality and technical achievement.
The 24-hour challenge is open to anyone, ranging from developers to designers, over the age of 18 — comprised of teams of three to four — who want to flex their civic hacking muscles and give back through America’s Code. “A Holiday Hackathon” will kick off on Friday, December 7th in Washington DC, at various chapter locations throughout the United States, and online, with introductory comments, curated challenges, and a reception to begin socializing, formulating groups and generating ideas.
On Saturday, hackers will engage in a total of 10 hours of civic hacking. Winner and prize announcements will immediately follow presentations.
All code generated for this hackathon will be open source and available for anyone to use or modify. Branches and pull requests shall inherit the license terms of their respective repositories. Participant coordination will be executed through dedicated channels in the Operation Code Slack organization.
