When everyone is truly welcome and celebrated, amazing outcomes are possible. The hands-on experience every team gets when they participate guarantees an eye-opening experience about the possibilities, both dangers, and opportunities, with big data, open data, shared data, aggregation, and data protection."

"I have really enjoyed working with Go Code Colorado... [it] provides a fun way for the public to engage in government open data, and has helped the City of Fort Collins better serve our community by connecting us with local groups that want to use our data as well as resources for releasing higher-quality data. This competition benefits so many communities like ours and I'm excited to see what the future holds."
