Geo:Code 2.0 Event - March 5th & 6th


This free weekend event will connect civically-minded community members with geographers and technology experts to collaborate on the use of technology and data to solve community problems or make government easier to use. Work on an open source project, take a run at visualizing available open data, help out with some research, work collaboratively with local government staff to improve public services or just generally put your shoulder into projects centered on improving, enjoying or exploring the places we live in the Twin Cities. 


Bring your passion to make our community and government better. We’re calling people of all backgrounds and skills. Citizens, designers, developers,  mappers, students - no technology experience needed. Everyone and every idea is welcome!
