What is Civic Hacking? To paraphrase this article on opengovdata.io:
“Civic hackers are programmers, designers, data scientists, good communicators, civic organizers, entrepreneurs, government employees and anyone willing to get her hands dirty solving problems.”
We’re a Code for America Brigade.
Meetings happen on the second Thursday of every month. Tech skills aren’t necessary to participate, only a willingness to collaborate to make our community better.

Thursday, September 13th at 5:30 p.m.
Location: Cowork Bloomington 213 South Rogers Street, Bloomington, IN.
There is a Slack group set up: https://bmghack.slack.com
