The City of Kenmore is hosting a new way of storytelling for the city using citizen power and open data. The city’s Hackathon, slated from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 26, is for civic-minded coders.

Talented coders, developers and designers will be creating a Kenmore-specific open data portal, which will be a customized one-stop access point to the City of Kenmore’s history, right on the webpage.

According to Leslie Harris, City of Kenmore public information officer, there will be free food, coffee and networking time (pun intended), along with more fun to be announced soon.

The event will be hosted via Hackpad, an online platform that allows for sharing and collaboration in real-time, either publicly or privately. The hackpad designed at the Hackathon will be attached to the city’s website: www.KenmoreWa.gov.
