Random notes related to the civic hacking initiative

  • previous DFW civic hackathons have been vague on licensing requirements, we need emphasize the need for FSF-compliant licensing on code produced, and free software is to be used to implement projects.
  • ChallengePost is a website used to host online challenges related to hackathons. Investigate to see if it's something we could use (may be easier/better to do ourselves).
  • Need hosting for internal use and public facing projects.
    • Softlayer - contact them
    • Sprocket - contact them
    • Amazon EC2 offers limited free hosting, contact about donating to project
    • Dreamhost offers free basic hosting to non-profits, suitable for our internal use
