Spokenvote Code Hacking Session

This meetup combines forces with Spokenvote, a project written in AngularJS, Coffeescript and Rails! Come see why the Spokenvote team is so passionate about this open-source Javascript and Rails consensus project. In this meetup we will discuss the list of open tickets and do some hands-on coding. Spokenvote is written in the AngularJS Javascript framework, so it's an excellent opportunity to take your Javascript skills into the front lines of the Javascript revolution. Many think of AngularJS as Google's bid for HTML6. Come see what all the excitement is about.

More about Spokenvote . . .

Spokenvote is a tool to help groups of any size, from a local school board to an entire nation’s people, reach consensus with radical efficiency. We think the process should be intuitive, fun, and democratic. Deeply inspired by Wikipedia, Spokenvote is an open source non-profit tool intended for small groups today, but over time to reach national politics. It starts with spontaneously capturing ideas as they occur to us. When we do that as a diverse group, a “power of the crowd” effect is introduced. The result is often a revelation of common sense that is difficult to discover from a top-down approach. The working project can be found at spokenvote.org.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
