Located in the Bay Area, San Ramon is surrounded by people working in the tech industry. Why not host a hackathon to bring them together to solve the city’s challenges? Their creativity and experience can help build apps, products, and ideas that benefit the community! This was the thought from a high school student inspired by a hackathon he attended at a nearby county. This initiative received an enthusiastic response from the Mayor’s office. Jointly organized by the City, Green Apple Education Foundation, and Bishop Ranch Innovation Intelligence Accelerator, the inaugural San Ramon Hackathon will be held on April 7th, 2018. The event is open to all in the Bay Area. Bring your brilliant and innovative ideas to reality and solve the challenge described below!
