The Fueled 2014 Hackathon - In support of the White House Safety Data Initiative

On September 20-21, Fueled is hosting it’s first Hackathon in support of The White House Safety Data Initiative. We’re bringing together the best developers, designers, and product experts in New York to build innovative applications based on data from the White House Public Safety Data Initiative. We’re throwing the Hackathon at the Fueled Collective in Soho in the heart of New York City.

We’ll be offering some exciting amenities during the hackathon including massages, group yoga plus catered lunches and pizza breaks to keep us Fueled.

Judging Criteria

  • Design
    Because the data is public safety data, we want to make it usable by all types of people and populations. As such, design is critically important so the application can be used easily by individuals of all technical ability.
  • Meeting a clear need
    Projects will be judged on whether they meet a clear need with the data.
