Los Angeles

Saturday, July 28, 2018

The Civic Hack Retreat is an opportunity for curious Elixir programmers to team up and work on a nontrivial Elixir application for the good of the city and people of Los Angeles. We'll spend the day in a beautiful mansion learning and putting our skills to use for the larger community.

We'd love for you to join us.

How it Works

Attendees will form teams of two. You can sign up as a duo or be matched as a single. Contestants will have a full day to write an Elixir application that somehow benefits the city or residents of Los Angeles.

Projects will be judged on their creativity and utility.

City datasets will be made available to teams looking to integrate this data into their applications.

Experienced Elixir developers will be assigned to teams to answer questions and help you level up your knowledge.
