Welcome to Pittsburgh's first ever Steel City Codefest!
Building off of Pittsburgh's strong spirit of innovation and collaboration, the Steel City Codefest is a PowerUp Pittsburgh event that encourages innovators to come together to work as teams to build interesting and creative solutions that will benefit the community, improve our City and have some fun.
I am excited that the City of Pittsburgh is hosting its first code-a-thon and am looking forward to the unique applications that result from this event, with the goal of making Pittsburgh a better place to live, work and play.
I want to personally thank all of our organizing partners, including the Urban Redevelopment Authority's (URA) Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship , Google, Bakery Square, the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Social and Urban Research, Maya Design and Traffic 21 . I also want to thank ShowClix (a URA portfolio company) for their sponsorship of the event.
Finally, I want to thank and recognize the City of Pittsburgh's Information Systems Department and my staff for their hard work to make this event happen.
Please browse this website for details on the event and to register. See you at Mayor's Mixer on Feb. 22 and at Codefest on Feb. 23 and 24...and good luck!
Mayor, City of Pittsburgh
