Friday Night Hack is a hackathon taking place July 19 and July 20 simultaneously in San Francisco and Tel Aviv, and you're invited! The aim is to develop apps to increase government transparency in Israel or improve Jewish communities around the world. The project is an initiative of Hasadna, an Israeli non-profit aimed at transparency and open data, the Schusterman Foundation, and the San Francisco Jewish Federation. Bay Area hackers will work at Parisoma and Tel Aviv hackers will be at the Google offices. Friday Night Hack (Thanks, David Katznelson!)
