Code for Portland Hack Night

  • Jun 17, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Our National Day of Civic Hacking event went great and we've got some fantastic groups working on projects together now. Come work on an existing project or bring your own!


6:30-6:45 -- Pizza (Sizzle Pie) arrives. Time for participants to arrive, socialize, and eat.
6:45-7:00 -- Group introductions, announcements from participants & organizers.
7:00-8:30 -- Hacking! Project teams break out to work. New participants can join teams, circulate, or seek out organizers for orientation (Nate (G. or W.), Erica, or Mele).
8:30+ -- Everyone reconvenes and shares reactions and progress made over the last two hours. Show and tell if time/resources allow it. Thank you and goodnight!
Optional Happy Hour for stragglers after everything's wrapped up :) 

Please RSVP!

Please RSVP so that we know how much pizza we'll need!

Civic Heroes of all types welcome!

This event is for coders and non-coders alike -- as long as you're interested in making government more transparent and building interesting things for our city, you're more than welcome!

Bring a laptop if you intend on getting some hands-on hacking done (it’s ok if you can’t).

There Will Be Pizza!

Pizza!!! We'll be getting some 'za from Sizzle Pie, so there will be vegan and vegetarian options.

If you have something you'd like to work on or are excited about for the social and civic good, let us know via the meetup or at the hack night itself.  We are growing our initiative and the energy comes from the community.

    Unfortunately I'll be out of town on that Tuesday, but I'm looking forward to hearing what folks are doing/working on!

    Hey, are people interested in seeing (short) demos of the hackathon projects at the start of the next meeting? Could be a fun way to see where things are at and get started!
