National Day of Civic Hacking This Weekend
National Day of Civic Hacking events will take place this weekend at more than one hundred cities worldwide. The Intel-sponsored event encourages developers to use publicly available data and code to create apps that improve their communities.
According to the #HackforChange website, "National Day of Civic Hacking is an event when citizens from around the world will work together with local, state and federal governments as well as private sector organizations with the common goal of improving their community through technology." It adds, "Anyone can participate; you don’t have to be an expert in technology, but you do have to care about your neighborhood and community."
