Hack for Pasadena is two-days of open sourced talks and hands-on problem solving, to re-imagine the way the web, applications, technology, and community participation will shape the future of the City of Pasadena. Hack for Pasadena brings together the tech community with businesses, nonprofits, academia and city officials to work together to solve complex social problems through technology innovation. Anyone can pitch an idea or problem. Ideas may range from coming up with creative ways to address the city's biggest challenges like homelessness, transportation, crime, affordable housing and public safety, to beautification projects and business ideas that will make the city more livable. From there, small groups form to brainstorm solutions and start tackling the issue with design and code. Publicly accessible data sets will be used to support the solutions. At the end of two days, each group will present a workable solution that improves the daily life for real people in our community. DATA & IDEAS / SHINE The City of Pasadena plans to provide finance and budget data, traffic, transit, parking and permitting sets for use during the event. Descriptions of available data sets will be provided once confirmed. Is there data you want to request from the City? Send us a request and we'll work with our City of Pasadena partners to see what's available at [email protected] As fellow participants submit ideas through the registration process, we will post them here to spark your interest. Hack for Pasadena is an event that focuses on solving real problems in our community with technology. A solution could take the form of a new web page or mobile application. It could be making new municipal data available to the public online. A solution could even take the form of some new hardware device. There's no restriction on the implementation of the solution, as long as it effectively meets a need.

Build Something Amazing, Bring Glory To Your School The inaugural Hacker Bowl will take place on March 22, 2014 in College Station. Hackers from across the state will battle for 24 hours to determine the best Hacker Team in Texas. Only one school can take home the Hacker Bowl Trophy. Will it be yours? Both non-students and students are eligible to compete for cash prizes in this free-to-attend event. As a bonus Seed Sumo, a new accelerator in Bryan-College Station, will be actively searching for startups who qualify for their acceleration program beginning in May of this year. Startups that are accepted may be eligible to receive between 20-50k seed investment. We'll provide free food, space, and access to amazing mentors. All you have to do is show up, and build something amazing! For 24 hours, individuals and teams from Texas schools including Texas A&M, University of Texas, Rice University, Baylor University, and University of Houston will compete for the Bowl Trophy to determine this year’s Texas school with the best up and coming programmers and designers. The winning school will have their names inscribed on the trophy before bringing it back to their school to showcase until next year’s Hacker Bowl. The Hacker Bowl is a statewide hackathon, presented by BCS Startup and AskU, designed to promote and inspire competition among the region’s best hackers. The Hacker Bowl, hosted in College Station, TX will serve as a battleground for hackers representing themselves and their Universities, as teams will be traveling from across the state to compete in web and mobile application design. The Hacker Bowl grew from AggieHack, a student run hackathon at Texas A&M which had more than 100 Aggie students participate in last year’s inaugural event. The upcoming event, expanded to include greater Texas, will be a two-day event beginning March 1st, with special presentations throughout. We are expecting at least 300-500 students from the state’s most prominent universities, competing for a grand prize. In particular, UT, Rice, Houston, Baylor, and Texas A&M are some of schools that will be present.
