Join the Demodam hackathon

Demodam is a new concept that brings together a community of developers, companies, municipalities and users. Demodam, a demo of a municipal website, showcases reusable open source products and services available for municipalities in a single market place.

The hackathon

During the hackathon of July 5-9 Demodam will take shape - hopefully supported by a grant from the Dutch Ministry of the Interior. Would you like to contribute to this interesting project? Here’s what you need to know.

Once you select your favorite time slot for your pitch on the last day you’ll just have to duplicate slide number 27 and edit it with your own characteristics. Some other competing teams have already added their proposals to the slide deck, we are waiting for yours!

Any doubts or comments?

The Demodam website is currently under development, so meet the community by:
