(Note - due to timing issues, we're rescheduling our open hack night to the 23rd to focus more on Chicago, as well as to enable more people to attend. Thank you for your time and patience)
Every Tuesday night, Code for America sponsors an "open hacking" session focusing on cool municipal projects....and Net2Chi members are invited to participate.
Thanks to Code for America, we have been invited to participate in an open hack session. Project particulars will be announced closer to the meeting date.
Don't worry if you're not a coder - consider this a great opportunity to learn about how tech is being used in the community. It's also a great opportunity to network,learn more about what's happening "in the field", and more importantly - become more familiar with the inner workings of 1871.
We hope that you can make it to this really exciting event, and thank Code for Americafor inviting us!
