Welcome to the Startup Weekend GOV: Open NW

April 27-29, 2012, over 150 developers and designers will gather at Seattle City Hall for the first-ever Startup Weekend GOV to leverage available open data to improve the lives of Washington residents.

What do you want to see built?

Browse the City of Seattle Open Datasets, King County Open Datasets, and State of Washington Open Datasets to see what data is out there, and submit your ideas below.

The entire public is invited to City Hall on April 19, 2012 from 6-9pm to learn more about Startup Weekend GOV, interact with government officials, and discuss your ideas with local technologists.

You are also invited back to City Hall on April 29, 2012 at 5pm to watch teams present their finished Web and mobile applications. Maybe your idea will become a reality!
