What is a hacknight?
This night is for technologists, designers, developers, and mapmakers who are working on projects. Consider this to be a bit of a study hall. Bring your projects, apps, datasets, and questions, and we will try to collectively answer them.
BetaNYC is committed to hosting safe and open events for all. By attending this event you are committing yourself to BetaNYC's Code of Conduct and Anti-Harassment Policy (https://github.com/BetaNYC/What-is-BetaNYC/blob/master/Code-of-Conduct.md).
At every hacknight, we feature three lighting talks. These are in-depth 3 to 5 min long presentations that dive into projects YOU are working on.
Eric Schles will present faceFind (https://github.com/EricSchles/faceFind), a very simple tool that makes use of openCV to discover faces in pictures.
Shelly Ni, from Significance Labs (http://significancelabs.org/) and NYC BigApps finalist, will present easyfoodstamps.com (http://easyfoodstamps.com/), a website that helps eligible New Yorkers apply for food stamps faster, from any smartphone.
Sean Auriti, from Alpha One Labs (http://www.alphaonelabs.com) and emrals (http://emrals.splashthat.com/), will be talking about developing block chain currencies for social good and how to make it work for Android.
