Civic Hacking Night at the Hub – August 28

Come work on civic technology projects at the Seattle Hub!

Work on projects like  the project your team worked on during the June 1 hackathon, bring a new project, or just hang out, learn, and meet folks.

 

Add the project you'll be working on in the comments or check out some of these projects you can work on:

http://seattlewiki.net – add content or work on an app that uses data from SeattleWiki.

This data about pay rate and gender in the City of Seattle was just recently posted and seems interesting: https://data.seattle.g...

Take a look at the projects by other Code for America brigades for ideas:

Open Oakland: http://openoakland.or...

Chicago: http://www.opencityap...

There are a bunch of applications that have been created by Code for America fellows or related groups that could be deployed in Seattle: http://brigade.codefo...

Also check out the main Brigade site for ideas: http://brigade.codefo...

    I'll have to take a bye this week -- got a conflict. :-(

    Is there something (e.g. one of the Code for America-developed apps) that we'd like to get working in Seattle? Maybe we could identify something we could do as a team, and take one meeting to work on it?

    I know what I want: If you've been to Portland, you may have tried out their "next bus" info, where one sends a text message with one's bus stop ID and gets a (very fast) response with the arrival time of the next bus of each relevant route. Yes, I've tried One Bus Away and Busdrone and the Busdrone app -- none of them "work for me" on my (older) Android phone.

      I believe at one point Brian was going around the city sticking one bus away stickers with stop #'s onto the poles.

      Saaaaay, maybe we could get the stop number info from Metro and upload it into Open Street Map. Have we got a contact at Metro / King County already? Or maybe our City of Seattle contact could introduce us to their County counterpart?

    Over the last week we got a couple tables from the city of the most used datasets they provide and the most searched terms on seattle.gov.

    We can spend some time on Wednesday looking at that data and figuring out if there are projects we can support that are likely to be high impact.

    I fixed the address to be correct for this meetup. Previously if you clicked the "HUB Seattle" link it would send you to some place far far away from the Hub. Sorry about that.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
