The atmosphere after a hackathon is usually one of relief and mutual congratulation, but the real work takes place in the weeks and months that follow.

In this article are four standout projects that emerged from the National Day of Civic Hacking (NDoCH), which took place over the first two days of June in 95 locations around the United States. Besides celebrating their ingenuity, there are some lessons to be learned from each of them.
