We invite hackers, concerned citizens and passionate observers to join us for "Hack City" - a 3 day-long hackathon where we'll put our heads together to come up with applications (mobile and web-based) aiming to create efficiencies in energy, building management and transportation sectors.

We hope to see you there! Join us November 9th - 11th, 2012 -- at Code for America.

"Hack City" Lyrics

[Whisper]

Hack, hack, city chic, city chic
Hack, hack, hack city chic, city chic, hack
Hack, hack, hack city chic, city chic

Cogswell on the beat ‚ O!

[Verse 1:]
Hack, city chic, hack hack city chic
Ten ten ten APIs & SDKits
MVPs / +3s / on the guest list
Devs-come-to-build-an-app / and generate investments

Some are veterans / and some of us are startup-kids
Designin' all night / Makin somethin excellent
My program, my code / I ain't sellin it
Assessing water use in new and old developments

Nu-Nu Tech Startups / Lit Motors killin' it
Got prize money? / Angel funding? / yea we building it
Gotcha APIs on my list (ha ha)
Tendril, you know what it is ;-)


Hack city chic, hack hack city chic [x3]
Ten ten ten APIs & SDKits
[Hook: x2]

[Verse 2:]
I'm a hackathon starrrr
My friend has.a.hybrid carrrr

Too many knobs, make the app too hard
Data is the engine /code bas-ics -- go far

Want that prize money / off top
Code it in the morning / like Jen Pahlka
Dot / Hashtag-Oakland-Coders HoLLa
You aint got no apps? /Guess you-betta-call-her

Sharin' skill sets / makin' mobile apps.
This could take awhile / bring a sleepin' bag
Got my redbull / the Mac‚'s all packed
Open-source code / comfy bean bags

oh man! / close up your tags
Comment out in PHP / something could go bad
"First Class Citizen" / Tatted on my back
CEOs love me / you know what it is

Hack city chic, hack hack city chic [x3]
Ten ten ten APIs & SDKits
[Hook: x2]

[Outro:]
We need Data, DATA
Submit DATA DATA
Data Data

Hack city chic, hack, hack city chic

Produce Data, DATA
We need Data, Data
Data, DATA

Hack city chic, hack hack city chic

(Hack, hack, hack, hack, hack...)
