National Day of Civic Hacking 2016

Project Lead: Inara Makhmudova

Project Contact: meetup.com

Code for Tucson gathered on the University of Arizona campus on June 4, 2016 to take part in the National Day of Civic Hacking 2016, a special event coordinated through Code for America, to work on community-centered projects.

During the event we brainstormed and collaborated on projects relating to food scarcity, language and job training resources in Spanish, and the preservation of Tucson’s birthplace.

City SDK

Project Lead: Andrew Slattery and Corey Bishop

Project Contact: @aslattery

This project was launched in response to the City SDK Challenge from Code for America’s Hack For Change initiative. Our goal is to develop an open-source web application to allow local leaders, agencies, and citizens to easily cross-examine data from federal, state, county, and city sources. One example we built was a tool to compare the locations of farmer’s markets against the average household income of various regions in the Tucson metro area, illustrating potential food deserts.
