Open Savannah (https://opensavannah.org) is a newly-formed local brigade of Code for America (http://codeforamerica.org/). We are a diverse and inclusive group of local civic technologists, designers, data geeks, citizen activists, government employees/elected officials and curious residents who share the common goal of using public data to improve government services. Our goal is to use creative technology to solve civic and social problems in Greater Savannah.
We’re getting back to basics in 2019, and kicking off our year-long multi-pronged open data initiative. We’ll be covering what we’ve achieved so far in terms of making local data more accessible, what we can do tactically and iteratively to release more datasets, and prioritizing the types of data the community most would value.
We’ll start at 6 after light food and drink at 5:45 p.m. No technical skills will be needed.
We invite residents from all neighborhoods and public servants to attend, and we’ll finish up by an analog paper-based voting system by 7 p.m. to give you the chance to weigh in on what data is important to your community.
Join us, won’t you?
