Data + Software + Policy = A very Berkeley hackathon

Join us for a 24-hour hackathon to solve the world's energy and resource challenges!

Calling all scientists, software engineers, policymakers, designers, and entrepreneurs, please join us for the 3rd annual BERC Cleanweb Hackathon! The goal of the hackathon is to address a resource problem (energy, land, or water) using visualizations or software. Food and beverages will be provided by BERC.

To be hosted at the Berkeley Institute for Data Science, a new amazing collaborative working space located in the beautiful Doe Library on UC Berkeley's campus.

We have room for participation from 40 UC Berkeley students or LBL staff and 20 Bay Area participants.

What makes this hackathon different?

  • Software beyond the startup: the goal is solving public policy data problems with ideas that might not fit into a venture capital pitch (and if they do both, all the better!)
  • People beyond the programmer: we are looking for technologists, policy experts, designers, and social scientists to join (or also be) software hackers.
