Code Across NYC 2014 is next weekend!
Join us on 22 Feb for #CodeAcrossNYC 2014. This is a two day prototype-athon taking NYC’s open government data and making it useful for NY City Council, their staff, and NYC’s Community Boards. In partnership with the Manhattan Borough President’s office, several City Council members and Community Boards, now is the time to make NYC’s open data useful for all.
Since 2009, NYC’s government has challenged communities to use thousands of its datasets. With the signing of the City’s transformative open data law in 2012, these datasets have been pouring out of NYC agencies. Painfully, City Council members AND local Community Boards who NEED this data find it difficult to comprehend.
Cue NYC’s civic hackers – developers, designers, mapmakers, data wranglers, urban planners, and content editors!
Date: 22 & 23 Feb 2014
