Tech Zone: Data Jam Closing Presentations
APA is partnering with BetaNYC, a civic organization dedicated to improving lives in New York through civic design, technology, and data. APA and BetaNYC are helping NYC's Department of City Planning tackle a number of technical challenges around it's newly launched Facilities Database. NPC17 Data Jam seeks to connect city and regional planners with members of the Civic Hacking community in NYC around an event at the APA National Planning Conference. The event presents a opportunity for planners at the conference to learn about civic hacking, including the purpose of a Data Jam, with a Q&A about the event and what might be able to be taken back their own communities.
Join for the closing presentations as Data Jam participants share what was accomplished in the day-long workshop. Hear about APA's and BetaNYC's experience in organizing the Data Jam, and learn from BetaNYC and the participants about what you might replicate.
