The New Jersey Technology Council (NJTC) and AT&T, along with other organizations across the state, are teaming on the “New Jersey Civic App Challenge,” a “virtual hackathon” for developers in New Jersey to leverage open data to build smartphone apps that serve community needs. The goal of the challenge is to encourage local developers to build and deliver apps and services that serve community needs with a particular focus on veterans; connect and engage citizens with their governments; and demonstrate how mobile technologies can lead to the next generation of tech jobs and investment. Special consideration will be given to individuals or teams who develop apps that serve the state’s military veterans and their families.
AT&T's commitment to technology innovation in New Jersey grows out of the company’s deep roots in the state and its multi-billion dollar nationwide investment in the mobile communications network of the future. By encouraging students, technologists and innovators in New Jersey to explore smartphone software development, we are spotlighting the enormous demand for developers and engineers needed to create the software that will drive our mobile economy.
