Microsoft is excited to again support the Center for Neighborhood Technology‘s fourth annual Urban Sustainability Apps Competition. The competition, which brings coders and the community together to solve neighborhood problems, is all about making Chicago’s best ideas around environmental and economic sustainability come to life. Over the course of the event, community activists and app developers will work together to create workable prototypes of apps that make our neighborhoods more sustainable. To help source the best ideas and empower non-technical Chicagoans to bring their wisdom to the table, Microsoft and CNT have been holding civic app development workshops in neighborhoods around the city and at the Microsoft Technology Center downtown.
The competition is held on June 5-7 at TechNexus: 20 North Upper Wacker Drive, Suite 1200, Chicago. Sign up here and learn more at cntideas.com.
