Gov. David Ige on Aug. 26 welcomed participants to the 2017 HACC Kickoff.

It was standing room only on Aug. 26, 2017, as Gov. David Ige welcomed approximately 300 participants to the Hawaii Annual Code Challenge (HACC) Kickoff, coordinated by the Office of Enterprise Technology Services (ETS) in partnership with the Hawaii Technology Development Corporation, local nonprofit Hawaii Open DataDevLeague, and multiple state departments and agencies. The event was the official start of the month-long competition designed to improve how state government interacts with and serves the public, while supporting IT workforce development.

At this year’s kickoff, community participants heard challenge pitches from several state subject matter experts, including representatives of the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, Department of Health, Land Use Commission, Office of Elections, Office of Hawaiian Affairs, University of Hawaii, and others.

Community teams will return to present their solutions at the HACC Judging and Awards on Sept. 23 at East-West Center, Keoni Auditorium. Doors open at 9 a.m.
