A trip to San Diego and $25,000 are up for grabs by submitting an app idea in the inaugural Accela Construct App Challenge!

Or want to build a tool for people and businesses to interact more easily with their local and state governments? Then submit your concept today! Winners will receive cash prizes and a stipend to attend Accela's annual customer event, Accela Engage 2014 in San Diego where you'll have the opportunity to demo your idea in front of city, county and state agencies, partners and other civic-minded developers. Entries must demonstrate usage of the Accela Construct APIs and there's brownie points for anyone who consumes datasets from Got questions? Contact us at [email protected] Details: We’re interested in fostering civic startups because we’ve seen the impact they can have on engaging citizens, making governments more open and productive, and in spurring the creation of new businesses and economic growth in communities. Accela already works with over 500 agencies in the U.S. to make their delivery of public services more streamlined and efficient. Now we’re looking to partner with app developers to extend that impact even further. Unlike your traditional hackathon, the Accela Construct App Challenge begins with a contest of ideas.

Sharing Economy Challenge Please join us on July 11-12 to design a sharing economy that can close the wealth gap. Impact HUB Berkeley, 2150 Allston Way, Suite 400, Berkeley, CA 94704 This challenge is open to anyone, including business leaders, community organizers, designers, technologists and students, interested in developing a more inclusive and equitable sharing economy.

Bring your ideas for using technology and/or business models to create sharing economy solutions to close the wealth gap. Why the Sharing Economy? Numerous studies have shown that the current economic system has created a tremendous wealth gap. In order to create a more sustainable economic system, we need to better align value generated with value received. The sharing economy is a movement toward better aligning value. Within this movement, there continues to be much discussion about the access and equality of sharing economy platforms and business models. Our Challenge During the course of the weekend, we encourage participants to think about how the sharing economy can be truly transformative in the way we align value. We challenge participants to conceptualize, test and rapid prototype sharing economy platforms, online or offline, that align value in a way that significantly addresses the wealth gap.

We'll be running Friday, August 1st to Sunday, August 3rd: • Friday 5PM to 10PM • Saturday 9AM to 10PM • Sunday 9AM to 5PM There will probably be some talks Saturday afternoon. Although the hackathon won't officially kick off until 5:00pm on Friday, you are welcome to arrive Friday morning if it makes for easier travel. The hackathon itself is in the atrium of Building 46, on the third floor; it is right across the street from the MIT Stata Center. Pick out a couple of projects to work on and familiarize yourself with them, or bring your own project(s) to work on If you plan to work on your own project, be sure to list it on the projects page and set up a public repository if you don't already have one, so that other people can help hack on your project. Install an up to date Haskell toolchain: at least ghc and cabal-install. If you don't already have these installed (or need to install from scratch on the laptop you're bringing), the easiest way is probably to install the Haskell Platform. You do not have to bring a project or a plan for what to hack on, but it helps.
