Once a month, on 3rd Mondays, our Hack Nights now also feature a “Learn Night” educational component. We regularly encounter community members who have info that is relevant to the Brigade--ongoing projects, vexing problems, or tutorials for new skill development.
This Learn Night:
Jackson County Historical Society & The Wilborn Collection, an acquisition of 500,000 historic photo negatives of Kansas City.
Steve Noll, former executive director of the JCHS, and board member Brent Schondelmeyer, will share information about how The Wilborn Collection came to be, what it represents and challenges they face going forward.

Our Learn Nights will be on the mezzanine level of Plexpod Crossroads, so project teams can hack away uninterrupted, but we hope you’ll find some topics of interest. These talks are not specifically directed at a technical audience, so they’re a great way for non-coders to get involved with Code for KC.
Presentations and Q&A will run from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Hack Night starts at 6, so you’ll have some time to mingle with the Brigade and grab some snacks.
