What we're about
Do you love open data, data visualizations, and mapping? Can you use your skills to help people find healthy, efficient, and sustainable transportation options?
The Transportation Techies meetup group is a community of people involved in transportation and technology. The group primarily consists of programmers who love playing with transportation data, and others interested in transit, biking & walking. We are entrepreneurs, computer scientists, transit nerds, urban planners, students, and armchair enthusiasts. We meet once a month. Our speakers typically demonstrate apps and data visualizations. Because our primary audience is programmers, we often talk about how the code works, but non-coders are welcome as well.
We invite technologists to share discoveries and innovations. There are a lot of APIs and data sources already available, waiting for programmers to put them to use. Follow us on Twitter at @techiesDC (https://twitter.com/techiesdc).
