Open Cleveland's Regular Meetup/Hack Night
We're presenting on the RTA Map (https://github.com/opencleveland/RTAHeatMap/), displaying how long it takes to walk to the closest transit stop in Cleveland! - We'll walk through how we made it and create some dialogue on how else we can use open transit data in Cleveland.
A group of us are working to making City of Cleveland's information - like City Council agendas - be available and more accessible to the public, based on conversations at Transparency Camp.

If you have an idea of a project that can help improve a local government or have developed a civic app?
If you're a local govt official or employee, share your experiences with data sharing in your workplace and find out how you can share the data that's available to you and promote open data policies there.
So, come join developers, designers, data geeks, civic leaders, organizers, idea-makers, and anyone else who is interested learning about our brigade, civic technology, and open data.
Programming experience is not necessary!
