Join Sunlight, NPR and the Washington Post for a Hackathon

By Tom Lee

It feels like a little while since this community got together for a hackathon, doesn't it? We had a great time at the VIP event around Transparency Camp. But with the election looming and a full summer's worth of new technologies, APIs and data releases, the moment seems ripe for politically-minded devs to get together and create some cool stuff.

So we're delighted to be a part of the upcoming Election Hackathon, cosponsored by Sunlight, NPR and the Washington Post. It's happening October 6th and 7th at the Post's downtown DC headquarters, and it's going to be a good one: we've lined up $5000 in prizes, a bunch of newly-released APIs, and a judging panel that includes Ezra Klein, Brian Boyer, Rob "CmdrTaco" Malda and our own Ellen Miller. Most importantly, it promises to be a great opportunity to meet other like-minded geeks.

You can find all the details here. Start brainstorming now -- we'll see you in October!
