Ready to Code for Buffalo? In partnership with Open Data Buffalo, we’re excited to co-host this Hack Night for Mayor Byron Brown’s Civic Innovation Eco Challenge! This meetup offers designated time for project teams to get together in-person and get some work done. Dinner will be served! Come work on projects, grab a bite to eat, and meet others using technology for a better Buffalo!
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
• What do I need to know before showing up?
Don’t forget your computer! Code for Buffalo does not currently provide any devices, so if you need your computer to work be sure to bring it with you.
This is a free form hack session designed for project teams to concentrate on hitting milestones, so please be considerate if you see a group in deep conversation.
• Who is this event for?
This event is for anyone interested in learning about or contributing to civic tech projects.
• Do I need to be a coder?
No! We need civic hackers of all varieties. Healthy civic tech projects have developers, designers, community partners, project managers/owners, and need lots of help. If you’re an experienced professional, we welcome you to contribute your expertise whatever it looks like.
