It is time for our annual spring weekend hack weekend - #CodeAcrossNYC! You must register at http://bit.ly/CodeAcrossNYC2014
On 22 & 23 Feb, we will double down on our open government advocacy and work with Manhattan Borough President, NY City Council members, and Community Boards to build useful tools on top of NYC's open data.
#CodeAcrossNYC 2014 is a two day prototype-athon prototyping tools for NY City Council, their staff, and NYC’s Community Boards.
We need New York’s civic hackers, mappers, designers, data wranglers, and content editors to make NYC’s open government data useful to government.
For these two days, we will focus on the following data realms: NYC 311, Crime and Public Safety Data, Land Use, Transportation, and School Data.
For those of you who are great writers, we are pulling together a tool that will enable City Council members, their staff, and Community Boards search, learn, and empower themselves with OUR tools. This tool will document tech tools and datasets relevant to governing in NYC.
Prizes will be awarded to the best prototypes. Awards will be announced later.
Space is limited due to the venue's size and because we want a highly productive event.
Again, you must register at http://bit.ly/CodeAcrossNYC2014
Then, join the conversation on data and projects in our newly minted BetaNYC-dev (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/betanyc-dev) discussion list OR in our Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/betanyc/).
