Hack.Developers, promoted by the Digital Transformation Team in collaboration with Codemotion, will be the largest sprint code ever made in Italy! On the weekend of 7 and 8 October 2017, all Italian tech community and developers will be able to participate in the programming marathon, organized simultaneously in more than 20 cities throughout the country.
Hackathon's goal is to meet the ever-increasing need of our country to make public services tailor-made to citizens, hence more accessible, simpler and more effective. Software developers, IT experts, and students can make a big contribution by providing their talents and knowledge. What will be achieved will help the PA to integrate more efficiently the technologies needed to digitize Italy.
Participants will develop open source code to build functionality to enhance central PA projects hosted on Developers.Italia.it, the open source community launched in March by Team Digital. You can join the event as a participant, host or supporter. If you are a software developer or computer expert, you can join hackathon in the city you prefer.
If you want to be more involved, the host figure is yours! Hosts are local hackathon organizers and will have a strategic role for good event success. You are not a developer but do you also want to make a contribution? You can equally participate in the spread of hackathon! Follow the event on Twitter with the official hashtag #hackdev17
