The National Day of Civic Hacking is Saturday, June 1st and Sunday, June 2nd. In cities across the nation, software developers, hackers, and citizens are coming together to create new technology that may help communities, neighborhoods, and cities. Chattanooga will be taking part in the national event with a local hack-a-thon.
A group of civic hackers called Open Chattanooga are spearheading the hack-a-thon which takes place on the fourth floor of the Chattanooga Library on Saturday and Sunday. WUTC spoke with Tim Moreland and Jenny Park of Open Chattanooga about what exactly civic hacking is and the upcoming hack-a-thon.
