OpenTwinCities is hosting a two-day CityCamp conference event in Minnesota. Red Hat Software Engineer Sam Folk-Williams, will be stopping by the hackathon (day2) to provide an overview of the OpenShift hosting platform - a great match for civic apps.
Signup for the November 10th hackathon is available as an option while registering for the unconference event (on Nov 9th).
We'll be hosting office hours to provide additional support for teams during the competition.
