API Show and Tell

Share the API you're building and how you built it! We'll have pizza and beer, followed by 3-5 API tours by fellow 1871 hackers. Learn what your colleagues are up to, give feed back and get to know each other. You might even learn something. Our plan is for this to lead to an API Mashup Hackstravaganza of Epic Proportions the following month.

    Here is the site I was mentioning that muxes city, county and state date: https://www.metrochicagodata.org/

    Mark (anyone really): FYI, there's a Open Gov Hack Night that meets every tuesday in the IMSA room if you're interested in hacking on Chicago Open Data (or other civic projects) http://opengovhacknight.eventbrite.com/

    Thanks everyone who came today! It was great to meet everyone. I think we've got the makings of a solid hacker community here.

    Special thanks again to Seamless, who provided the awesome food and drinks. Please reach out to Courtney Walsh ([masked]) if you want to cater lunch for an event or for your tireless startup team.

    Thanks also to Ryan Briones for sharing the very cool work he and the city have been doing to bring the city's data into the open. I don't think it's widely appreciated how incredibly lucky we are to have a mayor who gets it.

    Please email me or post to the message board with any suggestions you have for our next meetup. Next time we won't waste 20 minutes futzing with the AV :)

    Cheers,

    - Ben

    It was great. Liked both API presentations. Would love a hackathon to play around with them.
