Cupertino's Teen Commission together with the Cupertino Recreation Department is hosting <hack> Cupertino, a 13-hour overnight hackathon designed to solve a problem presented during our Opening Ceremony. What makes our hackathon unique is that the winning team has the potential for their idea to be developed together with members of the City of Cupertino and be implemented as an official City application.
