Civic hack night is a welcoming, open space for civic-minded, social good tech projects. We invite people of all backgrounds and skill levels to participate. While writing code is usually a component of our projects, we also need participants with backgrounds in user-experience design, data science, project management, and marketing.
We'll have pizza available, so don't worry about dinner plans.
We start off by learning about civic projects attendees have brought and then divide ourselves into small groups to get to work. We also organize breakout groups for brainstorming new projects and host an orientation session for new members. If you have a project to work on, or you'd like to lead an interest group brainstorm, please email us at [masked].
We're so excited to welcome Flatiron School as this event's sponsor. Flatiron School is an outcomes-focused coding bootcamp offering the best in software engineering education. Ready to add some skills to your toolkit? Get started today with their free Coding Bootcamp Prep or Data Science Bootcamp Prep and take your technical know-how to the next level.
Bring a laptop, because most of civic hack night is spent collaborating in breakout groups.
