Code for Atlanta

Let's hack!










Monthly Hack Nights: 4th Tuesday of Every Month

RSVP on Meetup.

Join us on the 4th Tuesday of every month at 7:00 pm at the Atlanta Tech Village. We're being graciously hosted by The Iron Yard.

We'll bring projects we've worked on at past civic hackathons -- like National Day of Civic Hacking and Govathon. New projects are encouraged, too. Developers, designers, project managers, data analysts, and subject-matter experts are all welcome. Bring your laptop and some great ideas!

Huge thanks to our sponsors at Mandrill. Mandrill is a transactional email product from the people who brought you MailChimp. Apps can use Mandrill to send automated one-to-one email, like password reminders, shopping-cart receipts, and personalized notifications.

All participants of Code for Atlanta events are held to a Code of Conduct and Anti-Harrassment Policy.



May 30-31: National Day of Civic Hacking

Register here.

Join TAG and Code for Atlanta as we come together to help solve problems for the Atlanta Community Food Bank and other food-related civic innovation projects, using the people and power of the web and data.

National Day of Civic Hacking is an international event that will take place in cities around the world. The event will bring together passionate citizens, software developers, designers, data analysts, entrepreneurs, subject matter experts etc to collaboratively brainstorm, create, build, and invent new solutions using publicly-released data, code and technology to improve our communities and the governments that serve them. Anyone can participate; you don’t have to be an expert in technology, you just have to care about your neighborhood and community.



April 12-13: TransportationCamp South + Govathon

Register here.

TransportationCamp is an “unconference” – where sessions are proposed and led by attendees – bringing together thinkers and doers in the fields of transportation and technology for a day of learning, debating, connecting, and creating. Created by OpenPlans in 2011, this will be the ninth TransportationCamp (others have been held in New York, Washington, San Francisco, Montreal, and Boston) and the second TransportationCamp South, following on the success of the sold-out inaugural event in February 2013.

Govathon is a civic hackathon series created by the City of Atlanta, Invest Atlanta, and Startup Atlanta. Govathon brings together technologists, developers, designers, subject matter experts, civic veterans and city officials to help solve problems that affect the local government and the community, making everything from websites and mobile apps to designing other types of innovative products and services.
