Hackers, coders, designers and entrepreneurs with a passion to create technologies that can fix civic issues are invited to “Hack for Change,” events happening in more than 100 cities this weekend as part of the second-ever National Day of Civic Hacking.
Code for Seattle is hosting the Emerald City’s event on Saturday. Some project proposals already include environmental indicators visualizations, hacking bicycle and pedestrian counters and a restaurant inspection app — all which take advantage of the City’s publicly available data.
Last year’s event churned out solutions, from a voice-based community feedback campaign to work on Seattle’s OpenStreetMaps.
