Details

Join us to work on civic hackery for a better Portland. Bring projects, ideas, designs, laptops, data, and friends!

Please RSVP as early as possible so that we know how much pizza to order!

Schedule:
6:00-6:20 -- Participants arrive and socialize.
6:20-6:30 -- Introductions, announcements from organizers & project leads.
6:30-8:30 -- Hacking! Project teams break out to work. New participants can join teams, circulate, form discussion groups, or seek out organizers for orientation (Nate G., Erica, Nate W., or Mele).
~7:00 -- Pizza arrives.
8:30+ -- Everyone reconvenes and shares reactions and progress made over the last two hours. Show and tell if time/resources allow it. Thank you and goodnight!

Civic Heroes of all types welcome! This event is for coders and non-coders alike -- as long as you're interested in making government more transparent and building interesting things for our city, you're more than welcome!

Bring a laptop if you intend on getting some hands-on hacking done (it’s ok if you can’t but it definitely helps to have one).

There will be pizza! We'll be getting some 'za from Sizzle Pie, so there will be vegan and vegetarian options.

If you have something you'd like to work on or are excited about, please let us know via the meetup or at the hack night itself. We are growing our initiative and the energy comes from the community.

Code for Portland has a Code of Conduct! Please always be respectful and help us keep our events welcoming, positive, productive environments for everyone.
