Bike Hack Night is a show & tell of bicycle-related apps, data visualizations, and gadgets. Doors open at 6:00 for pizza and soft drinks, with speakers starting at 6:30. We are happy to have Joel Yatsko from Arlington County Department of Parks and Recreation (http://parks.arlingtonva.us/), who will be making smoothies via his blender-bike. And thanks to Anna Petrone of Split (http://split.us/) we'll have bike-shaped cookies too!
Got a cool bike project? Contact Michael (http://www.meetup.com/Transportation-Techies/members/10550542). Our speakers thus far are:
• Kate Rabinowitz of DataLensDC (http://www.datalensdc.com/) will show how she mapped DC bike accidents (https://datalensdc.cartodb.com/viz/f8c4727a-7e95-11e5-ac16-0e98b61680bf/public_map) and bike counts (http://www.datalensdc.com/rise-of-biking.html).
• Rob McPherson and Justin Molineaux will show how Baas Bikes (http://baasbikes.com/) uses mobile technology to bring bikes en masse to colleges.
• Brooks Robertson of Esri will demo a tool that combines bike lanes with bike crash data, and can be exported as a map.
