South Florida Civic Hacking Day

September 17, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Emergency Ventures and Code for South Florida are partnering to host South Florida Civic Hacking Day on Saturday, September 17th at the General Provision Downtown location at 300 SW 1st Ave, Suite, 155 Fort Lauderdale FL, 33301.

We’re bringing together about 75 technology professionals and government leaders for a one day community hackathon.

Get a crash course in civic organizing and hear from local leaders making a huge impact. Come out and make a difference in your community while getting the facts on some of the issues South Florida faces today.


Attendees will break out into groups for discussions with an organization on some of the challenges they face, each around a problem with a prompt of a technology solution.

Groups will be guided through the necessary steps to come up with a solution prototype, and present their concept to stakeholders at the end of the day.


Partners will present a general problem to the Code for South Florida team, who will help mold a prompt for a technology solution and potential tasks for each type of attendee skillset, including:

* **Developers**
* **Designers**
* **Product**
* **Operations**
* **Advocates**

Each track team will have 1-2 Civic Hacking Day committee members assigned to support the development of the solution on the day and move towards implementation.

Make sure to bring a laptop and a water bottle.
