Thank you to The Longmont Channel 8 that spent hours at the Hackathon Event recording and capturing the highlights and putting together this wonderful video so we can share them with you.
Payton Peterson of PCProVideo was a great help during our Longmont Hackathon. He and his team setup their equipment at Skyline High School to live stream our event and also record videos of the app presentations, the awards ceremony and took time to walk around and conduct various interviews with hackathon committee staff, a few council members and developers.
To view a specific video clip, click on “Playlist LongmontHackathon (13 videos)” and you’ll see more options or visit the City’s Youtube Channel.
If we’re not broadcasting live, please choose from the “select playlist” dropdown “Longmont Hackathon 2013” to see previously recorded shows.
A big “Thank you” to Kristy “GovGirl” Fifelski who took some time this week to help us promote our first Hackathon by including us in her recent video update.

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).
Please email or call Scott Converse (email@example.com; 303.875.1243) if you’re interested or would like to learn more.
We are looking for 12 primary sponsors at 4 different levels.
