Attending sessions is not your thing? Want something more hands-on? We invite you to join Code for Charlotte and take part in the National Day of Civic Hacking Hackathon! On June 6, 2015, thousands of people from across the United States will come together for National Day of Civic Hacking. The event will bring together urbanists, civic hackers, government staff, developers, designers, community organizers and anyone with the passion to make their city better. They will collaboratively build new solutions using publicly-released data, technology, and design processes 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.

If you would like to participate, please be sure to RSVP. Everyone is welcome and can definitely contribute to Charlotte's Civic Tech Movement. It takes all of us to shape our civic landscape. So join us!
