This year’s theme is Undiscovered Vermont! Everyone knows about Vermont’s maple syrup, fall foliage, beer and world class skiing - but do they know about our semiconductor, spatial analytics and puppeteering industries? What about where to find secret caves, amazing barbecue, and locations to view the Northern Lights? What about foot traffic, snowfall, tourism, emergency response, road maintenance, wildlife movement, and business and job growth patterns?
For this year’s HackVT theme we’re asking teams: What can you discover about our State and how can you communicate it in a valuable way? What can you discover about our landscape, demographics, economy, government, and environment, and how can you provide access to that information through an application that provides value in Vermont and beyond? Come join us at HackVT and create tools to explore the ecosystem through geospatial data, get a new perspective and build an app to share your story with the rest of the community.
The Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce produces HackVT as part of it’s mission to develop, attract, and retain a talented workforce and support business growth.
