Civic Hacknight

This night is for technologists, designers, developers, and mapmakers who are working on projects. Consider this to be a bit of a study hall. Bring your projects, apps, datasets, and questions, and we will try to collectively answer them.  We'll hear 20-25 minutes of presentations on various subjects, and then have a less formal period for hacking, networking, and mingling.

Short Presentations:

Alex Cholas-Wood - Alex is a student at NYU's Center for Urban Science and Progress, and will share a project in process trying to aid the city's Municipal ID program.

Steven Adler - Alex is co-chairman of the W3C working group on open data standards, and will be sharing the work the W3C is doing to create open standards around Open Data Best Practices, Data Quality Vocabularies, and Data Comparability metadata.   

Chris Whong - Chris is a co-organizer of BetaNYC, and will share the technology stack behind his team's winning Code Across NYC project, an NYC Property Tax Explorer built with Node.js, D3, and Leaflet.
