Hack for LA is having a civic Hackathon on December 7 & 8. It'll be a great time to get some projects off the ground! We'll have them tell us a bit about their plans. Registration is now open: http://www.hackforla.org/hackathon_signup
Los Angeles just announced their new open data website that gives us a ton of info on financial data within the city both through visualizations and APIs. We're going to have a talk about what kind of data this is and how it can be used.
Hack for LA is the Los Angeles Code for America Brigade, a network of civic-minded technologists who contribute their skills toward using the web as a platform for local government and community service.
We connect the people in government to local hackers to solve real problems! It's fulfilling work that will lead you to meet some incredible people.
