Westside Civic Hack Night
We are designers, developers, and product managers, both experts and learners, coming together to make our city better for everyone. Flex your skills or learn new ones, and give back at the same time! Bring a laptop if you have one, but a team will put you to use no matter what your equipment or skills.
For a glimpse of our highly engaged community, click around our Slack workspace by joining at www.hackforla.org/slack. #westside-hacknight is the general channel for the Westside night.
Ongoing projects ("#" is the Slack channel to ask for more information):
#street-tree-map: Inspired by work done in New York City, an online platform to explore and care for Santa Monica’s urban forest. The data team is building out a schema and consolidating data sources. The front-end team is exploring API architecture and UI frameworks.
#engage: A platform to stay up to date on your local issues and make it easier to get your voice heard. The product group is pushing product discovery toward their first clickable prototype, and the data team is developing a machine learning model for deciphering meeting agenda data sets.
