Reinventing Government Starts Here with You
The State provides data sources around
Jobs, Tourism, Safety,
Veterans, and more!
Build great apps for Michigan. Spend three days with an army of civic-minded developers and designers creating amazing apps that benefit the public good. Work directly with State of Michigan experts using State of Michigan data to brainstorm, design, and build apps with real social value.
You dream up and build
The Civic mobile apps
Location-aware job search? Navigation that incorporates crime statistics to derive driving routes? Wizard-driven benefits search for Vietnam vets? The sky is the limit. You can make a real difference.
And you could win
The glory and admiration of your peers
Respect and press are valuable, but they don't put food on the table. In addition to app building, presentations from technology heavy-hitters, and the opportunity to do real Open Government work, Code Michigan will be awarding prizes to the best, most viable, most beautiful, and most useful apps developed over the weekend. Cash, prizes, and even slots to pitch your app to real VCs will be awarded to winners.
