If you are a nontechnical person and do not have a team to work with, you may attend our kickoff and seek to find team members, but there is no guarantee you'll find a team to work with. You can post your idea here and see if others are interested in working on it. There will also be conference sessions you can register to attend.
We also need volunteer developer mentors and support volunteers, please let us know if you'd like to help out. You can find out more about being a Hack for LA mentor here.
We Supply: Quick presentations and data samples that help to bootstrap your hacking, food to keep you going, and caffeine to keep you awake, along with technical mentors to assist you in building faster and smarter apps while incorporating new tools. We’ll also have specific civic data challenges that you can work on as part of a team.
You Bring: Your laptop, skills, ideas, and enthuaism for civic change. Come with a collaborative, team-focused mindset and/or team up in advance on Twitter/Facebook via @HackforLA.
