Would you like to see Miami evolve? Join us for CodeAcross 2015.
CodeAcross is a weekend of civic hacking events hosted by the nodes of the Code for America network around the world. CodeAcross is timed to coincide with both the last weekend of the Code for America Fellows residency and International Open Data Day. The theme for CodeAcross 2015 is Principles for 21st Century Government.
This will not be your typical HackAThon! Join us to hack, write and collaborate on four projects:
Miami Answers: Create, organize and help answer some of the Miami communityâ€™s most commonly asked questions about their government and local neighborhood.
Open 211: Creating an open-source platform that will serve as a directory for all of Miami-Dade Countyâ€™s health, human and social services.
Open 311: Use Miami-Dadeâ€™s new 311 API to create new visualizations or apps about civic services.
Civic Tech Issues Finder: Solve unresolved civic tech Github issues for Miami and cities around the world.
Who should get involved? Urbanists, writers, civic hackers, government staff, developers, designers, community organizers, and anyone with the passion to make their city better.
Breakfast + Lunch will be provided.
