BigAppsDevCamp #2

BigAppsDevCamp * Does your next app need municipal data? * Do have a mobile app that will change the way New Yorkers navigate though the city? * Do you want to become a vendor for NYC? * Are you ready to help NYC join the 21st Century? If you answer is yes to any one of those questions, you MUST attend BigAppsDevCamp. Believe it or not, New York City is in the process of opening a bunch of data set so we can develop Web apps, iPhone/Android/Mobile apps, and other amazing things! BUT before they open any data, we have to respond to an "RFEI"--in other words, tell them what and how we are going to use their data. The deadline is September 1, just a week and a half away! This Saturday (8/22), members of the OpenGov NYC meetup < http://bk.ly/mU... > will be hosting a workshop to help you navigate this complex process. Come this Saturday to plug into the following... * Why the city is RFPI'ing this process and how to format your proposal. * How you can make money by coordinating future Big Apps campaigns. * Brainstorm ideas for apps with other developers and city dwellers. * How your app can change the city. If you can't attend this and still want to participate, add your idea to Apps for Democracy's NYC BIG APPS Ideas board < http://bk.ly/mP... > or help us promote via twitter and the #BigApps hashtag. A raw data dump of the NYC Big Apps Ideas content can be downloaded here. < http://barcamp.org/f/... > Saturday, 22 Aug from Noon to 5 pm. The Change You Want to See, 84 Havemeyer St, Brooklyn, RSVP here or at < http://barcamp.org/Bi... >. If you have any questions, please reach out to one of the two organizers. * Noel Hidalgo - [masked] - cell [masked] * Matthew Burton - [masked] - cell [masked]

    I think that having everyone's email was an easy and useful step toward allowing everyonbe to keep in touch and continue working on the project together after the meeting more productively.

    Group was welcoming. Good size - diverse yet intimate. Learned a lot through both explicitly and through osmosis. These people have the kind of knowledge and savvy that I aspire to, and I'm grateful for the chance to hang out with them. I would like to help out with a project of some kind so I can learn more. This looks like the place to find one.

    Good ideas, great crew of people (interesting, diverse backgrounds, thoughtful, engaged in the topic), everyone contributed, shared lots of resources, well organized (as far as unconferences go), and offered some good directions for moving forward.

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