ATX Hack for Change is Austin’s response to the National Day of Civic Hacking, a White House initiative started in 2013 to inspire citizens to come together and improve their communities. Since 2013, ATX Hack For Change has brought together people from all walks of life to tackle the unique issues facing our weird city. This hackathon focuses on social good projects, from creating mobile apps that streamline volunteer work feeding the homeless to aggregating data for where our sidewalks should be built.
