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: Creating the Transportation System of the Future
presented by KCATA
KCATA and its RideKC partners are working to create the transportation system of the future. In the past year and a half, RideKC has developed two mobile apps to increase the accessibility of our customers. This has included the RideKC mobile ticketing app that allows customers to plan, track and pay for trips, and the RideKC Freedom On-demand app that allows customers to access an Uber-like on-demand service. Both apps, as well as traditional means for accessing transportation services, have resulted in us collecting a wide and varied list of data points. RideKC wishes to engage interested parties on how to incorporate new technologies and service models to create more direct transportation solutions, better inform customers, produce a seamless customer experience, and coordinate data output across a multitude of formats into a singular master database.

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.
