Civic Hack Day: New Haven @ SeeClickFix

Friday, August 12, 2016 - 6:00pm to Saturday, August 13, 2016 - 4:30pm


August 12th, SeeClickFix will be hosting a 2-day Civic Hack event. One piece of feedback we received from June's event was that folks wanted more time to be able to deliberate, dream, and develop their ideas and tools. 

The theme will still be New Haven’s Unique Needs, and we’ll use the SeeClickFix API to build solutions.



Form teams to address one of New Haven’s Unique Needs in one of three ways:

  1. Build an embedded device (arduino, raspberry pi, etc.) to report issues.

  2. Build a social media app to help coordinate community efforts on SeeClickFix (i.e. Snowcrew).

  3. Build a tool to enhance the user experience of SeeClickFix.

  4. Or any project you’re interested in!

You won’t be alone! SCF folks will be around all day to help with the API and any other technical questions.

To prep check out our development information:
