What is a BetaTalk?
A BetaTalk is part of BetaNYC's monthly thought leader salon series. These events are designed to demystify the civic technology, data, design, and the thought leaders behind it all.
The Code for America Brigade program (http://www.codeforamerica.org/brigade/) is an international network of people committed to using their voices and hands, in collaboration with local governments, to make their cities better.
Microsoft Technology & Civic Innovation partners with a wide range of local community stakeholders, including governments, non-profits, businesses, startups, think tanks, academic institutions, and grassroots civic hackers. Working with these organizations, we aim to collaboratively address the most pressing community challenges through the hyper-local creation, deployment, and evangelism of civic technology. Areas of focus include data and privacy, 21st century jobs and opportunities, and more responsive and resilient communities.
