The first Longmont Civic Hackathon event held this weekend has come to a successful close. The event, held over the course of 3 days, began Friday evening and ended Sunday afternoon. During the event we checked-in 56 people, of those were 10 Adult developers and 11 Youth developers (most, if not all, were from St. Vrain Valley School District).

There were eight (8) different apps that were show and many were completed to a point that they were able to be demonstrated to the audience. Amazingly, all 8 apps won an award, and one app, Civic Engage won two awards. The first place award went to the event’s youngest developer, Jackson Roberts for his Longmont Events app. Congratulations to all who won.

We’re looking for Sponsors for our Longmont Hackathon Event

The City of Longmont is looking for sponsors that will help us to put on our first civic Hackathon. This event is scheduled April 12 – 14, 2013. Would your company like to join us?

Longmont is an emerging high tech center with a highly trained and educated workforce, business friendly leadership and world class infrastructure (including being one of the only cities in America building out a city owned gigabit data network for homes and businesses). Residents enjoy an excellent quality of life and Longmont is host to or close to several fortune 500 companies (in town: GE, Seagate, Amgen, Microsoft). Amenities close include a thriving startup community in nearby Boulder (Techstars; Foundry Group Venture Capitalists, Google) an international airport in Denver, several universities and federal government agencies. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Longmont is home to more than a few award winning microbreweries (Oskar Blues, Lefthand Brewery and the Pumphouse).
