Code Across Cleveland

On Saturday, February 21 from 12 pm to 3 pm we will hold our Code Across Cleveland event where we'll discuss what open data and civic apps can do for the residents of Cleveland and all of Northeast Ohio. We'll discuss:

  • What are open data and civic hacking all about?
  • Is Open Cleveland for you?
  • See a live demonstration of Large Lots, a website for people to find and buy City-owned vacant lot, streamlining the process.
  • Creating a searchable index of Cleveland City Council's legislation and updates.
  • Using RTA's newly released real-time data to give up-to-date bus schedules.
  • How you can add your ideas for of projects that can help improve a local government.

If you're a local govt official or employee, share your experiences with data sharing in your workplace and find out how you can share the data that's available to you and promote open data policies there can help lower costs, streamline citizens' public requests, and more.

So, come join developers, designers, data geeks, civic leaders, organizers, idea-makers, and anyone else who is interested to learn about our brigade.
