About the Event:
The Code for America summit (http://www.codeforamerica.org/summit/) (#CfASummit (https://twitter.com/search?q=%23CfASummit&src=typd)) is an annual collection of smart government and civic technology practitioners. For this BetaTalk, we have invited NYC’s #CfASummit attendees to share their insights, highlights, and reinforce the local connections made across the continent.
For this night, eight to ten Code for America Summit attendants will recap their personal highlights and report back on the future of civic technology & design!
