Get ready to #hackDPL

Are you a computer programmer or app developer interested in giving back? We have the perfect opportunity for you to do so! Join fellow coders downtown at Grand Circus for a 24-hour hackathon and help build an app for the Detroit Public Library. A cash prize will be available for the winning app.

Automation Alley is committed to being a partner in Detroit. So when an IT challenge was discovered at the Detroit Public Library, Automation Alley built a team, including members of Grand Circus, to host "#hackDPL" in an effort to fix a technology problem and improve one of Detroit's cultural gems. Come eat pizza, network and hack away!
