Event description

Description

As we get ready to launch a new batch of projects at Hack KC on September 23-24, Code for KC is using hack nights in August and September to develop projects, build teams, and equip veteran and new Brigade members alike to have a productive weekend.

Hacking Tools 101

We use a variety of producitivity tools like Slack, Github, Waffle.io and others to keep in touch with Brigade members, manage workflow, help teams communicate, and keep projects on track. As projects and teams evolve they use these tools in different ways and to different degrees, but it helps make the most of our weekend sprint when we spend a bit of time getting everyone on the same page. Brigade Captain Paul Barham will lead teams through the tool sets, help get accounts and channels established, and lay the groundwork for a productive Hack KC.

***

Hacking Tools 101 is the first in a series of three hack night workshop sessions leading up to Hack KC. We encourage individuals planning to participate in Hack KC to join us for as many workshop sessions as possible.

Hack KC is more than a weekend hack event. Throughout the year, we are on the lookout throughout across our KC Digital Drive community partners looking for compelling project opportunities, and Code for KC is the primary avenue for bringing civic tech projects with a software development angle to life. We look for projects that may take 60-80 hours of time over the course of 6-12 months and deliver meaningful impact in the community, largely through our weekly hack nights. But these projects take all sorts of shapes, from Made in KC and localstart.org, which launched at our first event in 2013, to Community KC, to I Got Mine.

Check out current projects in development or submit your own at HackKC.org.
