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 630p.

What does the “edition” mean?

Each month throughout 2016, we are experimenting with a theme. This month features a guest speaker and sample projects related to Sustainability. In March, the theme is Democracy.

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 hack.
