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.

Code For Seattle May 31 – It’s not just for geeks

code-for-seattle

The Seattle event is one of dozens planned around the country, and will be part hackathon, part unconference.

The goal: bring together technologists, entrepreneurs, social activists, designers, and citizens to address civic issues in Seattle.

Anyone can participate. You don’t have to be an expert in technology.

  • you do have to care about your neighborhood and community.
  • storytellers are needed
  • Non profits need to think beyond their one big silent auction events to incorporating more informal ways of interacting with ALL donors, not just the 1%ers

Schedule and updates at codeforseattle.org/hackforchange.

Have a project to pitch? there’s a wiki page for that!
