We gathered from 10 in the morning and had a general introduction, soon after that we started brainstorming ideas, projects and actions.
Then we formed groups and come up with actionable items.
After lunch, we code/design/blog and whatever we need to make things happen. And we did it.
I was fortunate enough to work on Hear Near: here is a report from Alex Howard:
A day after the datacamp, a new app is available to Seattle residents. Hear Near pushes alerts about Seattle events nearby to mobile phone users using text messages. Hear Near is available from iTunes and Android. Hear Near was created by a team that included Amber Case (whose geolocation startup, Geoloqi, powers it), Aaron Parecki, Joe McCarthy, Jesse Kocher, Gene Homicki, Naoya Makino, Steve Ripley, Rebecca Gutterman and Jenny Frank.

Full of actions, full of communications and discussions.
People there were all awesome! They all love Seattle; and guess what, I love Seattle too! such a great city with awesome people and working on cool stuff!
Code For America is truly committed, has extreme bias towards actions, and super talented people.
Great work everyone!
