Civic Hack Night - Digital Divide Edition | Sketch City

We'll work on projects related to the digital divide in Houston: broadband access by neighborhood, smartphone and device access, generational divides, etc.

Join us for an digital-divide-focused hack night at Station Houston. Everyone is welcome. Doors and networking at 6:00 pm. Work starts at 6:30 pm.

What are civic hack nights?

Civic hack nights are free, 2.5 hour events where people get together to work on projects for the public good. It's part working, part networking, 100% good times. Here is a video from last October's hack night.

Who attends civic hack nights?

The event is open to the public. Attendees include software developers, designers, academic researchers, data journalists, high school students, analysts of all stripes, urban planners, policy wonks, entrepreneurs, elected officials, and curious citizens who want to make Houston better through technology. 

What should I expect?

Throughout the space, people will break into clusters to discuss and work on projects. Feel free to join in any discussion.

There will be brief announcements and introductions at 6:30 pm, then quick lighting-style talks.

What does the "edition" mean?

Each month throughout 2016, we are experimenting with a theme. This month features lightning-style talks from guest speakers related to education.  

I don't code. Is there a place for me?

Yes! Civic hack night is a great place to network, share, and learn from one another. People are friendly and knowledgable. Even if you don't know how to code, chances are you'll find something to work on. 

What else?
