This was sent my way:
On September 24th and 25th an
unprecedented event is taking place: a codeathon bringing
together programmers and software engineers from both the U.S.
and Russia to address challenges of openness, transparency and
accountability in both countries.
Code4Country is the first event of its kind -- a technology-
meets-international-affairs marathon convened within the
framework of activities of the Bilateral Presidential
Commission and with support from civil society and the tech
community. Code4Country is about ordinary citizens working
together across borders, and building bridges between the U.S.
and Russia by addressing common challenges.
Programmers, designers, engineers, techies, activists and
digital diplomats to come out to American University on
September 24th and 25th. Bring a team, or join one on the
spot. Work with coders in D.C. and in Moscow to brainstorm,
code, mash up data and win prizes for apps that promote
openness and make data accessible to your community. Register
