Hacking for the greater good

Monday, May 7, 2018 by Katy McElroy

Every year, St. Edward’s University, in partnership with Open Austin, Google Fiber and the city’s Innovation Office, hosts the ATX Hack for Change competition to provide computer programming-savvy Austinites with a chance to use their skills to improve their community. Now in its sixth iteration, the hackathon is open to residents over the age of 16 with all backgrounds, interests and levels of experience. This year’s competition runs from June 1-3: Check out the event website to see projects from previous winners and register to participate.
