Apps for SEPTA Recap

At some point in the next few days, I’ll have time to do a proper recap of the civic hacking event I organized with the gang from Devnuts to build transit apps for the Philadelphia region, but in the interim I’ll provide this short post.

The event was awesome!

We had a full house of hackers, and a good number of non-technical participants joined us on the first day to offer ideas. Our partners and sponsor stepped up big time to make the event a pleasure from start to finish, and also to provide some neat incentives to the winners to continue to develop their new transit apps. (I’ll be writing more about these incentives in a follow up post.)

For now, here is a round up of the media coverage from before and after the event:

A video put together by one of our terrific sponsors – TicketLeap:

And some pictures I took at the event throughout the weekend.

Be on the lookout for a follow up post with some thoughts on lessons learned from this event that can be used to improve the results of civic hackathons in the future,
