AUDIO: Hack N Akron Develops Solutions For City

Written by

A group of tech, business, and design experts spent ten hours Saturday working on some of the pressing issues facing Akron.

By the end of the Hack N Akron hackathon, participants had developed branding for Akron neighborhoods including logos and websites, assembled an online booking system for rooms in Akron's community learning centers, and built an app that can search the city's land parcel data and break it down by usage.

Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan told the group of volunteers before they started their work that the city intends to utilize the group's work. 

Courtney Gras, Executive Director of event organizer Launch League, joined Jasen to talk about what the group accomplished and what they plan to do in future hackathons.
