Peshawar Civic Hackathon


Pakistan Software Houses Association for IT & ITES (P@SHA) is the supporting partner for Peshawar Civic Hackathon to be held from 31st January 2014- 2nd February, 2014 at UET, Peshawar.


Calling all civic-minded geeks! Think your city could be better?


Be it Peshawar or Lahore, we have civic problems! Do you have ideas about how to fix things? Do you like working with other intelligent people? Have skills like web or mobile development or design? Want to innovate on top of government information and services? Come apply your geek or creative skills to transforming your city for the better.

Join us in Peshawar the weekend of Jan 31st and learn how your tech, creative, and problem solving skills can transform your city.

During the 2-day Civic Hackathon, you will learn open-source hacking for civic good, get mentored, receive input from domain experts in government, have opportunities to network, and be fed meals — all for free thanks to our sponsors. All you need to do is bring your brain, skills, and enthusiasm. You will form teams to create prototypes that address civic problems.
