WHY? Do your part to increase civic engagement
Their list of local projects is a little hard to understand and make sense of. Hopefully they’ll get a communications person on it (that could be a hack day project for someone non technical!). Here is what came out of the last one.
The weekly civic hacking night is a chance for you to spend time working on the civic application you’ve been meaning to work on. Need a project to work on or have an idea that you’d like help with? Attend to meet like-minded folks looking to team up on projects.
Who should attend:
Technologists, designers, urban planners, journalists, and anyone interested in civic engagement & technology. Not a coder? Attend to learn programming or get involved other ways!
What you’ll need:
Please bring a laptop (or be prepared to team up with someone that has a laptop, or work on projects that don’t require a computer).
How to find them:
2nd floor Triangle. Go up the stairs or the elevator to the 2nd floor and head over to the triangle area of the building. You’ll see signs.
