Announcing Denver Code for Communities
This July, the Partnership for Sustainable Communities and PlaceMatters will be hosting a civic hackfest in Denver to build and improve the latest apps that bring sustainability into the forefront of everyone’s lives. These apps could help people and organizations answer questions like:
How do I get around the region quickly and affordably using any mix of transportation choices?
What is the true cost of my housing choice, including rent/mortgage and transportation?
Where are all the vacant lots and what’s the process of purchasing and developing these?
What does my neighborhood look like in terms of diversity and equity and how can I connect with my neighbors?
The event will bring together non-profits, government agencies, data providers, programmers, civic hackers, designers and anyone with an idea or stake in the future of our communities. For 36 hours, we’ll code and hack away at apps that will improve the lives of people living, working and playing in the Denver region. Bring your talents, ideas and creativity. We’ll provide the data, expertise and nourishment. Looking forward to seeing you this summer!
