Several groups here in Austin have allied to produce a Code-a-thon in ATX this year. This event follows in the six year history of Code-a-thons nationally and will be dedicated to creating open sources tools and solutions for non-commercial, municipal and community-oriented organizations.

We gather volunteer programmers, designers and graphic artists to build upon existing open source tools during our 48-hour lock-in event. This will be a great opportunity to collaborate and network with some of Austin's most talented programmers and designers, as well as provide excellent visibility for Austin's tech community.

At our past code-a-thons, we were able to create over 20 new features for non-profits including a disability-accessible events calendar, a consensus wiki, a bicycle accident report mapper for android, a garden to gardener match-making website, a voting module for Drupal, and many more.

This year's code-a-thon has already begun! The event in April will be the culmination of multiple events beginning with Code For America's "Civic Innovation" Hackathon on Feb 25th (cfaaustin.eventbrite.com), ATX Barcamp during SXSW (barcampaustin.org), and the Washington DC Code-a-thon on March 24-25. Each of these events will be exploring ideas and building toolsets for using during the ATX 2012 Code-a-thon.
