Hack SMC

May 21, 2016

The Hack SMC is a day-long event where individuals and groups come together to design and create a software application or concept that addresses a need in San Mateo County. Entrants utilize the County’s Open Data Portal to create apps, websites, etc. that help streamline County service delivery, increase collaboration between County officials and residents, and reduce some employee tasks and assignments that will allow for staff time to be redirected to duties that are more complex or of higher value.
