Colorado calling all app coders

From The Durango Herald:  Go Code Colorado is asking computer coders for help in organizing the state’s vast stores of data.

The Colorado Secretary of State’s Business Intelligence Center and the Governor’s Office are sponsoring Go Code Colorado with the goal of making government data more accessible and helpful to businesses.

Go Code Colorado is hosting a contest in which winning application developer will get $25,000. Two finalists from each of five regions, including Durango, will advance to a final round in Denver.

“The state collects a lot of data … but it’s just sitting there not helping the business community,” said Elaine Marino, an organizer.

Go Code Colorado hopes to make the state’s data more available to businesses looking to relocate, raise capital or connect to higher education.
