Please join us at Microsoft NERD, along with Cambridge City Councilor Leland Cheung, for a review of a draft Open Data Ordinance for the City of Cambridge. Discussion will range from the types of data openly available by the City, how it will be provided for public use, and the means through which the City can ensure that developers have access to data in a timely manner.
Code for Boston is a Code for America Brigade - a volunteer civic innovation organization created by Boston-area developers, designers, urban planners, data geeks, and researchers with an interest in solving civic and social problems through the use of creative technology.
We feel that Boston was the driving force in the creation of Government 1.0; we should be leading the way for Gov 2.0. We seek to leverage the revolutionary spirit of New England to help open, improve, and engage our local governments across the Greater Boston area, and to pursue projects that solve real problems in our communities.
In conjunction with our fellow Brigades across the country, we aim to provide a focal point for community-based civic innovation and technology projects in the Boston area. We meet weekly at the Cambridge Innovation Center in Kendall Square, from 7 - 9:30pm. Please review our group's Code of Conduct before attending.
