Chattanoogans seem to have a knack for waking up and hitting the ground intensely inspired and ready to act on behalf of their community. Recently, many local, passionate citizens gathered in December to share their problems, perspectives and expertise while identifying community challenges in need of attention and improvement.
As a result of those efforts, several priorities and projects have been selected as starting points for Chattanooga's CodeAcross event , which will focus on building solutions to some of our city's most pressing transit, housing, and public safety challenges. This is your chance to dig in and help build the solutions.
CodeAcross 2014 is a weekend of simultaneous events taking place in dozens of cities around the world, including Chattanooga. Coinciding with 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.
Join other local and visiting technologists, educators, designers, planners, and thinkers at the library on Saturday, February 22 from 1-5pm who will be teaming up with the Code for America Fellows and the Open Chattanooga Brigade members to start turning ideas into accessible, useful tools. Be a part of the teams building the tools that will build a better Chattanooga.
