At this month’s OpenNY meetup, on Wednesday, March 16, we will collaborate with Rachel Sterne, the City’s Chief Digital Officer, to workgroup improvements to the City's Developer Policy, DataMine, NYCStat, NYCity Map, & City Calendar.
Your feedback will shape a 90-day review of City’s public digital infrastructure, Rachel’s first project as the CDO.
Doors will open at 6:30 pm for a bit of socializing. At 7 pm, the program will begin. After a brief introduction and review, we will break up into small teams. At 8 pm, we will reconvene for a report back before heading home.
To maximize our time, we are assigning homework! YES, HOMEWORK!!! Don't be scared, this is fun stuff...
