Want to make Fort Collins better? We’ve got a Hackathon for that.

FORT COLLINS, Colo., July 1, 2016 – Code For FoCo, a new Fort Collins-based civic tech organization, hosts its inaugural hackathon Friday July 8.

The hackathon is the first in a series of launch events sponsored by Code For FoCo. The organization brings hackers, designers, artists, and others together to solve challenges faced by the local community.

“Fort Collins has a growing tech community. The goal of this hackathon is to bring that community together,” said Code For FoCo founder Jordan Majdolashrafi.

At the hackathon, participants will be presented with a custom domain name with a theme courtesy of Name.com. Whichever team builds the most creative site will win the hackathon and additional prizes donated by Name.com.

The free event is from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, July 8. Pizza and drinks will be provided.

It will take place at Galvanize Fort Collins, 242 Linden St, Fort Collins, CO 80524.
