Event Details

CodeAcross 2014 is a weekend of events taking place in cities around the world. There will be events hosted simultaneously in dozens of cities all across the globe during the weekend of February 21-23, 2014. Coinciding with International Open Data Day, the goal of CodeAcross is to activate the Code for America network and inspire residents everywhere to get actively involved in their community.  


Chattanooga's CodeAcross event will be focused on beginning to build solutions to some of our City's most pressing transit, housing, and public safety challenges.  You helped us identify the challenges we need to tackle at our kickoff event in December - now come help us build the solutions!


Technologists, educators, designers, planners, and thinkers of all kinds are needed to team up with our Code for America Fellows and Brigade members to start turning your ideas into accessible, useful tools.  Join us to build the tools that will build a better Chattanooga.


Here's what we're doing:

1:15 - 1:30: Intro, History, and Mayor's Welcome

1:30 - 2:00:  Challenge Area Overviews

2:00 - 3:00:  Project Pitches (3-5 minutes each - all ideas welcome!)

3:00 - 3:30:  Past Successes from Code for America and What Comes Next

3:30 - 4:40:  Team Formation and Getting to Work

4:45 - 5:00:  Wrapping Up and Next Steps

Open Chattanooga

Chattanooga has a legacy of collaborative problem-solving, and now with the Gig, we can leverage technology to address real issues experienced in our communities.  

With funding through the Knight Foundation and the Benwood Foundation, the Open Chattanooga collaborative will develop an engaged community of residents and community leaders that are equipped to access, interpret and utilize open data in order to address community issues and better interact with their government.  Learn more at openchattanooga.com.
