The first Startup Weekend aimed at connecting local application developers, entrepreneurs and community members with online government data will take place on April 27, 28 and 29, in Seattle City Hall. 

 “We’re asking the technology and start-up communities to help us find new ways to use government data. Startup Weekend Gov is a great opportunity to come build an application and make a difference in your community,” said Mayor Mike McGinn.

Startup Weekend Gov offers a 54-hour work session that begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, April 27. Developers will use data posted by the City of Seattle, King County and the State of Washington to create new mobile apps and business ideas that make government services more accessible and relevant to residents and businesses.

Data sets can be found at
