Three urban innovation weekends. Tech-focused mayoral debates. A civic unconference. Inspirational talks and discussions. 30+ projects.
San Francisco boasts many of the world’s most accomplished technologists and community activists. Mash them up with a high profile mayoral race and you have Summer of Smart, a four-month experiment in urban innovation and open government. Over three weekends -- multidisciplinary 48 hour “hackathons” -- developers, designers, community leaders, urban planners, journalists, artists, and other creative minds will rapidly prototype solutions to some of the city’s most recognized needs. The best of the projects and ideas will be presented to the candidates and city in September.
