HackNEO: National Day of Civic Hacking (Day 2)

Developers, designers, writers, community members, computer wizards, park lovers, and data geeks:

Northeast Ohio will be joining dozens of other local governments, including the White House, in the National Day of Civic Hacking, to promote the use of open data and open source technology in a two day event dubbed HackNEO.

HackNEO is being organized by the civic technology volunteer “brigade” Code for Summit County. The grassroots organization is hosting HackNEO with sponsorship from the County of Summit, along with technology publisher O’Reilly Media and tech firm CartoDB. The event is a call to action for anyone in Northeast Ohio who wants to make an impact: anyone can get involved, irrespective of professional experience.

Join us for this free event and help us use open data to work on one of our three Data Challenges, from mapping our regional parks system, to creating a new and innovative data visualization using national Census data, or even contributing local knowledge to SummitWiki, a Wikipedia-style website editable by anyone about places in Summit County.

Breakfast and lunch is provided on both days. All participants receive an event tshirt, $100 Amazon Web Services credit, and other items to say "Thank you" for your commitment

Please register soon that we have an accurate lunch, tshirt, and door prize count!

Be sure to follow @hack4NEO on Twitter for more updates on sponsorships, door prizes, data challenges and more!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
