We're gearing up for next season.

Stay tuned For themes and announcements


All Hack Oregon projects are open source, built entirely by volunteers from our local community. 

Although each of our projects require a slightly different blend of talents and resources, our teams are always interdisciplinary and always have roles for people at all levels of experience.  We have a rich network of mentors and expert contributors, and we assemble specialized teams by matching skills each person wants to contribute with the skill they want to challenge and build.   

Together we tackle tough information problems in our civic infrastructure--- and because we operate free of bureaucratic, client-based, or venture funded restrictions, we can move fast and innovate faster.   

It's not always easy, but we think it's pretty worth it.

Don't worry, it's quick and painless.

 
 

Last season, half our volunteer force trained with Hack University.

Whether you're a professional developer, or looking to break into the industry for the first time--- we have a full spectrum of beginner to advanced classes.  

We started Hack University because we see the need to grow talent in order to build big data projects together.  Many of our best experts and mentors are now instructors, and we have a wealth of data for case studies and active, immersive lab work. 

The best part is, all of the money we raise through training goes straight back to support our open source work.
