Are you, or do you know, a person under the age of 18 who’s free from 1-5 August? Then may I present the following:
Young Rewired State is a week long hack event (1-5 August 2011) where young and aspiring web developers across the country build their own web apps, visualisations and projects using government data, mentored by great companies with visits from rockstar geeks.
At the end of the week, all the projects are presented to press, government and industry at a big event in London, where judges will award prizes to the best apps and ideas.
I’ve met the people behind Rewired State and can vouch for how phenomenal they are at what they do.
