Open Austin – Finish Up Weekend
All year, volunteers from Open Austin have been working on Civic Tech projects. Needs in the community were identified and researched at the Code Across Austin event in February. Teams formed around projects at the City-sponsored ATX Hack for Change in June. And throughout the year, we’ve hosted monthly Civic Hack Nights to hack our projects forward.
The Finish Up Weekend is our final major event of the year!
The focus will be on existing projects that just need that last little push.
Do you need some design help?
A logo from a graphic artist?
Some backend development in Ruby or Python?
Maybe you need help marketing your solution and doing some testing with users. And if you’re project isn’t deployed to a staging or beta site, we want to help you get it there.
All skills and experience levels are welcome.
Maybe you haven’t done any “civic hacking” but you want to get involved with a project that could have a real impact in our community. We’ll need help with design, development, user testing, field research, marketing, photography, writing, policy expertise and probably more.
Come celebrate a great year of civic hacking in Austin and let’s Finish Up!
Breakfast, Lunch and Coffee will be provided.
