Quorum is headed to Austin, Texas! This weekend will be jam-packed with exciting events, panels, and conversations on everything tech, policy, data, and government.

Quorum's cofounder Alex Wirth will be joining Rep. Hurd (D-TX-23), Rep. Gallego (D-AZ-7), and CEO of Iron Bow Rene LaVinge for a panel discussion on "Opening Up Government's Vault of Data" Saturday, March 11th at 12:30pm in Hilton Downtown Austin Salon H. We'll also be participating in the WeDC Startup Showcase as well as the Dell Policy Hackathon later that afternoon!

Of course, no trip to SXSW would be complete without a guide to some of the must-see events this year's festival has to offer. Take a look at our SXSW Interactive weekend reccomendations!
