Collaborate to build apps and visualizations, clean up unstructured data, catalog public datasets, create new projects to transform our region; check out an event on the calendar for more on how Civic Hack Nights work.

On Civic Hacking.
"A civic hacker is an open source software developer who uses his or her skills to make their community and country a better place. ... A civic hacker will just do something, not asking for permission, ignoring government bureaucracy, in order to build tools and technologies with a civic-minded bent."
-- Luigi Montanez
