RSI and City of Augusta hosting 'Hackathon'

Posted: Updated:
AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Rural Sourcing, Inc. partnering with the City of Augusta will host a Hackathon during the Westobou Festival. The public is encouraged to visit the Amphitheatre this Friday anytime between 2pm and 7pm to watch our local college students compete to develop a mobile website for Augusta.

"As our city moves towards a more knowledge based economy to take advantage of our extremely strong information technology, military, energy and medical sectors, it is a great pleasure to see the innovative efforts of community partners like RSI to further these endeavors," comments Mayor Copenhaver. "As we look towards a tremendously bright economic future for our city and our region as a whole, it is forward thinking events like the Hackathon which will undoubtedly help pave the way."

We chatted with Zachary Gunter, an intern with RSI, who will be part of the competition.
