VP for IT and CIO, Garret Yoshimi, joined Governor, David Ige, State CIO, Todd Nacapuy, and other representatives from government, private, and non-profit organizations to judge the first Hawaiʻi Annual Code Challenge (HACC). The opening ceremony started on Saturday, August 27, 2016. HACC is presented by the State of Hawaiʻi Office of Enterprise Technology Services and the State of Hawaiʻi Transformation Internship Program.

The event was the culmination of the month-long, hackathon-inspired competition designed to engage the local tech community in the modernization of Hawaii state government.

Twenty-seven teams presented solutions to the HACC judges panel. Solutions were judged on originality, design, sustainability, utility and impact, team collaboration, presentation and delivery, and bonus points for “audience’s top choice.”
