My Experience at the 2018 LSCITCon Hackathon
By Andrew Sharp, Illinois Legal Aid Online
The hackathon I participated in took place over the course of one day, January 9th, 2018, the day before the ITCon took place. ITCon is a gathering put on by the Legal Services Corporation (LSC), the largest funder of civil legal aid in the country. LSC gives a special type of grant called a Technology Innovation Grant (TIG) to organizations to innovate and improve their technology infrastructure. The ITCon is a yearly gathering of the various organizations and companies in this space.
