Event Details

Note: this event has been reduced in scale to a brainstorming workshop for the cities of Fort Worth and Irving, TX. 

From the national organizer's website:

National Day of Civic Hacking is a national event that will take place June 1-2, 2013, in cities across the nation.  The event will bring together citizens, software developers, and entrepreneurs from all over the nation to collaboratively create, build, and invent new solutions using publicly-released data, code and technology to solve challenges relevant to our neighborhoods, our cities, our states and our country.  National Day of Civic Hacking will provide citizens an opportunity to do what is most quintessentially American: roll up our sleeves, get involved and work together to improve our society.

The event will leverage the expertise and entrepreneurial spirit of those outside federal, state and local government  to drive meaningful, technology-based solutions for federal, state and local government.  It demonstrates what's possible when we all work together to strengthen our society and our lives. YOU can make a difference no matter where you live.

The Fort Worth Makerspace in conjunction with Nokia Developer outreach is working to bring this civic coding activity to the Dallas-Fort Worth area.  We're starting with a small one-day workshop with the cities of Fort Worth and Irving, with the hopes of doing something bigger in 2014.

We're not just looking for coders or data gurus, either-- every citizen with an interest in improving their habitat, amenities and government is asked to join!  Developers will be looking for unique ideas on how to make use of open data... that's where you come in!  Feel free to register for the event in advance.  FYI, we also have an event listing on the Hack for Change site.

We are expecting about 25 participants.
