It’s time for Go Code Colorado, one of our favorite parts of the year. It’s a Colorado competition that invites developers and entrepreneurs to use public data to build apps that create business intelligence. It’s so, so, so much more than a hackathon. It’s an opportunity to meet new people, learn something new, and help build a stronger Colorado.
Each year, the Go Code team announces the challenge statement at their killer kick-off party. This year, it’s at Galvanize Golden Triangle on Wednesday, Feb. 1, at 6 p.m. -- and we’re promised figs, mushrooms...and maybe meatballs. Oh yeah, and Great Divide beers! How could you miss it? Register for the kick-off event right now and start building your team.
Go Code Colorado hinges on the open data posted on the Colorado Information Marketplace at data.colorado.gov. At the end of the competition the three winning teams receive $25,000 to keep their app and business idea going. Learn more here and let the games begin!
