The weekend of February 20-22, 2015, Code for America will hold its fourth annual CodeAcross event. CodeAcross is a weekend of civic hacking events hosted by nodes of the Code for America network around the world. It is timed to coincide with both the last weekend of the Code for America Fellows residency and International Open Data Day. The goal of CodeAcross is to activate the Code for America network and inspire residents everywhere to get actively involved in their community.
The theme for CodeAcross 2015 is Practices of 21st Century Government. We encourage events to organize around one or more of the principles. We will be offering challenges centered around the principles for organizers to use at their events.
Who should get involved? Urbanists, civic hackers, government staff, developers, designers, community organizers, and anyone with the passion to make their city better.
