Needs a location
IMPORTANT NOTE: We are taking a hiatus from our in-person Hack Nights as we deal with the implications of COVID-19. We encourage teams to continue project work and to meet virtually from 6:00-8:00pm on Mondays. Our ability to provide pizza and snacks will be compromised, however :).
Link for the March 16 Zoom is:
You will need to register at the Zoom link to access the meeting kickoff. Individual teams will have access to video breakouts via Slack.
We are also exploring possible projects we could take on to help address this public health emergency. Please email [masked] if you have any questions or are interested in working on immediate public health-related projects.
Aaron, Paul, and the rest of the Core Team
Interested in helping the Kansas City area? Great! Whether or not you know how to code, you can help by joining us to work on civic hacking to create a better Kansas City and surrounding cities. Bring projects, ideas, designs, laptops, data, and friends.
6:00 - Social / Networking
6:15 - Kickoff and Introductions
6:25 - New Member Orientation and Hacking
8:00 - Wrap-up
First Mondays are "Pitch Nights," when we have a slot for new project pitches during kickoff; third Mondays are "Learn Nights," where we have community speakers on civic tech topics from 6:30-7:30pm.
Location: Plexpod Crossroads (formerly Think Big CoWorking).
Entrance in the alley on the West side of the building.
Please RSVP so that we know how many snacks & drinks to bring.
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).
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.
