Clear your calendar - It's going down! National Day of Civic Hacking: Boston 2015 kicks off on June 5th, and you're invited to take part in the festivities. Microsoft (255 Main Street) is our meeting spot for a weekend of fun and excitement. Come one, come all, bring a guest, and hang loose. This is going to be epic!
Our goal at NDoCH is to bring together government folks, technologists, and regular citizens to start working on local problems in their communities, facilitated by open data. Before the event, we'll be developing several different thematic tracks that will help to frame up the discussion.
At NDoCH, we'll bring together government employees, technologists, and regular citizens to start working together on creative solutions to some of these issues. We're aiming for CodeAcross to have something for everyone - this is definitely not a just-for-coders type of event - by combining the best elements of unconferences and hackathons.
At the event, attendees will get to pitch ideas to work on projects in several focus areas. After forming groups, teams will spend the rest of the weekend developing their idea together. We expect that outputs will take many forms, everything from map-based apps to long-term research projects are welcome!
We invite you to join us as we work together to make positive change in our community!
