Please join Code for Kentuckiana’s 2nd Civic Technology Meetup! We’ve been working on several projects since our launch and have opportunities for you to get involved.

We will be joined by community partners who are building new tools and projects alongside us. This is where you come in! Each project requires a variety of folks with all kinds of skills, expertise, and interests to make it successful. There’s room for everyone, regardless of coding ability. We’d love to have everyone from engineers with dozens of years’ experience, to self-taught coders with a few weeks’ experience working on a side project, and even folks who don’t want to code but think technology should improve the world around us.

We will update this event as our community partners are confirmed.
We hope you can join us as we create a safe, equitable, and resilient community using technology and civic engagement.

Here is a list of some of the projects we're working on:

Renters' Rights
We're developing a web app that renters can use to track the condition of their rental unit and help them get their deposits back. We're partnering with the Metropolitan Housing Coalition and Kentucky Equal Justice Center on this application.

Public Comment App
This is an application that will help non-profits facilitate public comments on pending federal regulations. The application will also allow users to provide their contact information to the non-profit for future communications. Lots of non-profits rely on the public to submit comments to drive federal regulations, but they don't often know who's commenting or interested in an issue. This app can help non-profits build relationships with those who are passionate about the areas in which the non-profits are working. Kentucky Equal Justice Center is a partner on this app, but it should be useful to many non-profits working in public policy.

Career Finder App
KentuckianaWorks approached us for help building a career finder app. They currently have a website that provides lots of information about particular jobs, but they don't have a good tool for helping people figure out which jobs are right for them. They would like to build a web app to help close this gap.
