We hacked for Newark!
The City of Newark and Audible.com sponsored a challenge to redesign the official city website. The contest opened virtually on June 1st with a meetup one week later on June 9th. They started coding on June 1st, and met us on the 9th for food, fresh ideas, and to present their design to Mayor Booker.
The best website design may be picked by the City for a $30,000 1-year implementation and maintenance contract! Other prizes include Kindle Fires and annual Audible subscription.
