Civic Hacknight

[Note about the venue - You must RSVP with the name that appears on a photo ID. RSVPs will close at 4:00 PM the day of the event in order to give building security a list.]

What is a 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. 

BetaNYC is committed to hosting safe and open events for all. By attending this event you are committing yourself to BetaNYC's Code of Conduct and Anti-Harassment Policy.


Lighting talks:
At every hacknight, we feature three lighting talks. These are in-depth 3 to 5 min long presentations that dive into projects YOU are working on. 

Data Scientist John Gergley will share analysis and visualizations created from the GTFS-realtime feeds available for some New York City Subway lines.

Former CFA Fellow Nick Doiron will talk about Translating Civic Apps, techniques used to detect a user's language and provide corresponding content.



Thank you Dev BootCamp NYC, BetaNYC's event partner.

DEV BOOTCAMP is an educational experience designed for the future. We focus on hands-on learning over old-school lectures. From day one, you’ll dig in and start coding. It’s the only way to learn. Apply today and learn.

    Hey! I want to invite you to an upcoming event. Because it involves civic engagement, I thought you'd be interested: http://issuevoternyc.eventbrite.com

    "Issues + Innovation = Impact: 100 days before the Election" brings people from Government, Nonprofits, and Startups together to discuss tri-sector engagement and civic engagement.

    Speakers include: Art Chang, Founder of Tipping Point Partners and Chair of the NYC Voter Assistance Advisory Committee;
    Ron Gonen, Founder of Recyclebank and NYC Deputy Commissioner of Sanitation, Recycling, and Sustainability

    Come network, hear an engaging group of speakers, and celebrate the pre-beta launch of IssueVoter.org.
