Civic Hacking effort with Code for America
« on: March 25, 2013, 04:40:38 PM »

On March 30 we're getting people together for the purpose of using technology to make Central Florida a better place to live in. Code for America Brigade is an organizing force for local civic engagement - a national network of civic-minded volunteers who contribute their skills toward using the web as a platform for local government and community service.


For technology people I think it's a chance to use your skills to have a positive impact on the community and branch out by playing with different technologies while doing something cool. For people who aren't coders or designers, there's a lot of work to be done as well - we're looking for anybody who's interested.


We're planning to have a monthly meeting and there will also be a national day of civic hacking in June.  Our first meeting is this Saturday, March 30th at 10 am and we'll talk about Code for America and some of the work that we've started on a Public Art finder application. Check it out, sign up for the meeting, and help us get the word out.  Hope to see you there.

Awesome, sorry you can't make it this week, but we hope to make it a monthly thing, so keep watching for the next meeting.
