Next Meetup

Portland Civic Hack Night @ Peloton Labs
• What we'll do Once a month we discuss and work on civic technology at Peloton Labs. Civic Hacking is the idea of applying rapid prototyping and modern, open technology to the solution of common civic problems such as voting, budgeting, parking, transit, community engagement, etc., (to name just a few). Everyone is welcome from all backgrounds and skill levels. We suggest bringing a laptop or something to work on for unstructured time. We also share what we are working on at the beginning of each meetup and will sometimes have a scheduled speaker. There is usually some simple food and drink like pizza, but you may want to bring some of your own as well. Let us know if you have any food recommendations since we're thinking about what food to have for 2018! PelotonLabs is a coworking space in the West End of Portland, Maine dedicated to connecting and encouraging people who are stepping out of traditional modes of employment so they can improve their lives and contribute to the world around them.

There are no rules. • What to bring laptops are encouraged but not required • Important to know We are building our new website: http://openmaine.org From there, you can find info to sign up with us on Slack, follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and get to our GitHub repository.

What we're about

OpenMaine (formely Code for Maine) is a local Brigade in the Code for America network.

Our goal is to help create services that are simple, effective, and easy to use, to benefit our communities. While most of our work focuses on the creation and development of technological solutions to civic problems, not all "hacking" needs to involve coding or technology.

Everyone is welcome from all backgrounds and skill levels. We welcome those who have ideas about problems to address, those who have administrative, design, and/or technical skills to contribute, and those who want to learn more.

Once a month we discuss and host a civic hack night to work on civic technology at the Mechanics Hall Library.
