Code for Durham is a bi-weekly project night for technologists, designers, developers, data scientists, map makers, and activists who are working on "civic technology" projects. Consider this to be a study hall or office hours to improve the city. Bring your laptop, ideas, projects, maps, data, and questions.
This group is for those who want to:
• get work done on civic projects;
• start a new project, or find one to join;
• get feedback from technical, government, or community experts; and/or
• learn about tools for local empowerment, open data, and smart and open government.
For first timers trying to get the most out of the night, you should be prepared to talk about what you hope to gain from this experience, and what skills you want to flex. Prior to the Meetup, you can explore www.codefordurham.com to get familiar with projects and where you might want to plug in. You could also watch Civic Hacking 101 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wH6LnW_qjeI) or get inspired by some of the Code for America 2015 Summit videos (https://www.youtube.com/user/CodeforAmerica/playlists).

Have fun! Do good!
