    Hackathon builds a better community

    The idea for the Pitzer hackathon on Saturday was really quite simple. Recruit a group of talented people from a variety of backgrounds to determine how technology can help build a stronger Claremont community. In this quite informal atmosphere, teams were assembled to discuss specific issues where technology applications might help the city. Teams were assembled ranging from students with serious tech and coding skills, to local business people, and even city councilman Sam Pedroza. Homelessness and volunteerism were just two examples of the topics being tackled. The group in the photo came up with the idea of creating an app the would help connect organizations who need volunteers, to people who are willing to help. With over 60 people coming and going during the entire day, the ideas continued to flow at a steady pace. More on the results from the hackathon in a later edition. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger
