CaBi Hack Night is a show & tell of apps and data visualizations about Capital Bikeshare. Read about CaBiHackNight I and II and III to get an idea of how it works. Doors open at 6:00; presentations start at 6:30. Note we are at 1776's Crystal City location, in Arlington, VA.
If you have a cool CaBi project and would like to join the show & tell, please contact Michael. So far our speakers are:
• Matt Caywood of TransitScreen, sharing his study of how long you should wait at empty/full bikeshare stations.
• Anna Petrone will show us a way to calculate the amount of rebalancing needed between bike stations.
• Matthew Ficke will show his app that predicts the likelihood of finding a full or empty station.
• Nico Staple will show how he made a CaBi app that shows dock statuses.
• Malynda Chizek Frouard will show how she adapted Chicago's DivvyBrags system into CaBiBrags.
• Mike Azar will show how he made bike W20167 a star.
• Harley Cooper will show how Foursquare ITP used CaBi trip data to develop a policy framework and expansion plan in the CaBi Development Plan.
• Michael Schade will show how he animated CaBi data.
1776CC has two bikeshare stations nearby, and is close to the Crystal City Metro station on the Yellow and Blue lines. The building has underground parking (park in the green zone); free if you enter the garage after 4pm. The neighborhood has more free parking.
This event is possible thanks to generous support from our sponsors. Thank you to 1776 and Mobility Lab for the space, the Crystal City Business Improvement District for the beverages, and Mobility Lab for the food and help with organizing.
