StartupCity Des Moines

Are you up for a challenge? StartupIowa dares you to turn piles of government data into something useful during OpenIowa, a three-day competition. OpenIowa participants will be given access to vast city, county, and state datasets prior to the event. The code-athon, April 27-29, will kick off with pitches for using the data for web, mobile, SMS, or software applications. Voting will narrow down the ideas, and teams will form. Coders, designers, and data junkies will then have two days to bring the projects to life. The event costs $30 and includes all food and drinks for the weekend.
