From The Denver Post: Colorado on Tuesday launched a statewide public apps challenge called Go Code Colorado. The effort aims to bring government, business and tech communities together to make public data more accessible and expand the state’s economy.
State officials say it is the first competition of its kind in the country, using public data to build business tools and bolster sales.
“Our inspiration for this project came from civic app events like NYC Big Apps, as well as startup incubators like TechStars,” said Secretary of State Scott Gessler in a statement.
