Code Across NYC

It is time for our annual spring weekend hack weekend - #CodeAcrossNYC! You must register at

On 22 & 23 Feb, we will double down on our open government advocacy and work with Manhattan Borough President, NY City Council members, and Community Boards to build useful tools on top of NYC's open data.

#CodeAcrossNYC 2014 is a two day prototype-athon prototyping tools for NY City Council, their staff, and NYC’s Community Boards.

We need New York’s civic hackers, mappers, designers, data wranglers, and content editors to make NYC’s open government data useful to government.

For these two days, we will focus on the following data realms: NYC 311, Crime and Public Safety Data, Land Use, Transportation, and School Data. 

For those of you who are great writers, we are pulling together a tool that will enable City Council members, their staff, and Community Boards search, learn, and empower themselves with OUR tools. This tool will document tech tools and datasets relevant to governing in NYC.

Prizes will be awarded to the best prototypes. Awards will be announced later.

Space is limited due to the venue's size and because we want a highly productive event.

Again, you must register at

Then, join the conversation on data and projects in our newly minted BetaNYC-dev discussion list OR in our Facebook group.

If you have a chance, please share this event on your fav social media sites!!

    Yeah this was a lot of fun. Lots of exciting and interesting projects. Are there links to them somewhere?

    I wish we could have stayed overnight, though. And of course, we could have used more food :) It was very nice of NYU Poly to host the hackathon - the caliber of the hacker competition that NYU Poly attracts as a host is higher than for the usual hackathons :)

    We are TWO days away from BetaNYC's second annual Code Across. I'm very honored to announce we will kick off with two of NYC's most respected civic hackers. Hon. Gale Brewer, NYC's open data god mother and Manhattan Borough President, and Hon. Ben Kallos, civic hacker and NY City Council Member.

    The two of them will share their civic hacker testimonies and kickoff 30 hours of civic prototyping!

    If you haven't registered via eventbrite, do so now! < >

    Then, read up on what you need to know for the event. < >

    I'd like to do a post about this event for Technically Brooklyn. If I can get five people who plan to go who live in Brooklyn to email me, I will do a post about it and encourage others to RSVP. If you'd like to be included, email me at [masked]
    Tell me:
    1) Why you are going to Code Across America? (a couple sentences is great, but getting specific is even better.)
    2) Your name and who you are in the world (your work, your vision, your expertise -- whatever suits you)
    3) Any link you might like me to add. Twitter. Your company. Your site. Whatever you like.
    4) What neighborhood in Brooklyn you live in. If I get more than five Brooklynites by the time I do the post, that's cool too.

      I'm moving to Brooklyn soon, so you're 2 for 2 on the leadership
