Hack4Sac - Code for Sacramento

Join us for pizza and code! All volunteers--civic enthusiasts, coders, designers, and data wranglers--are welcome!

 

On Hack4Sac nights, we work on apps and data. Currently, we're building a brand new Drupal site (shout out to Sac DUG for joining and supporting us!) which will help you track our current projects and find ways to get involved!

And we've also got some other great projects in the que, such as:

- SAC's OPEN DATA PORTAL! - contribute some data, or use some data to make something great.

- 2013 GREAT AMERICAN CIVIC HACK! - Coders, read all about this Code for America initiative here. Fork any one of seven repos (including CKAN!) to tackle bugs and close out issues. This is a great opportunity to code on something that matters.

- OPEN STREET MAP!!! - We're using Open Street Map--the free, open source, "Wikipedia" of maps--to build Sacramento's geodata layer. And our first project is FOOD! You don't need to be a coder to contribute to Open Street Map; we'll teach you everything you need to know. Join us and help build a resource that will benefit EVERYONE in our community!

And of course, you can always bring your own project to work on =)

 

Drop by anytime from 6-9pm. See you then!

    We're gonna roll out the beta version of the new Code4Sac website tomorrow at Hack Night! My favorite two features - project pages and forums - are operational and ready to help us collaborate for Sacramento goodness. Can't wait to share with you all and hear your feedback. A very special shout out to our Co-Captain Kaleb Clark and brother-in-Drupalness Carson Black for setting us up with a badass website!

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