Participate in the National Day of Civic Hacking, June 6th

We want to make sure that our more tech-savvy NCDD members know the National Day of Civic Hacking, a cool event being organized by the good people with Code for America this Friday, June 6th with help from Second Muse and NASA.

All across the country on this day, people will be gathering to develop tech solutions that address a number of community and civic challenges that have been identified.

Here’s how Code for America describes the day:

On June 6, 2015, thousands of people from across the United States will come together for National Day of Civic Hacking. The event will bring together urbanists, civic hackers, government staff, developers, designers, community organizers and anyone with the passion to make their city better. They will collaboratively build new solutions using publicly-released data, technology, and design processes to improve our communities and the governments that serve them. Anyone can participate; you don’t have to be an expert in technology, you just have to care about your neighborhood and community.

Folks who are interested in participating are encouraged to join an event close to them, which can be found through the map on www.hackforchange.org, or register to host their own event.

We hope some of our NCDD members will participate!
