Action Night (formerly Hack Night)
[VIRTUAL/ONLINE MEETING ONLY]
Code for BTV, a Code for America brigade, brings together teams of volunteer citizens and technologists to create new tools for civic-oriented and social justice organizations, solving meaningful problems for our community through digital technology.
Action Nights, formerly called “Hack Nights” are recurring scheduled times for teams to get together and push along project work, whatever that might mean. For teams that are in design and planning phases, that may mean UX and design or brainstorm exercises. For teams that are working on an iteration of implementation, that could mean meeting with a client or programming or event planning … projects take many forms and have many needs. We’re finding that having a set-aside time for people to put on their calendar to get work done is helpful.
If everyone that shows up is familiar with the work and project teams, then we may just jump right to work. If we have new people show, we will briefly introduce the current projects so you can know what we are all working on and how you can join in.
We welcome everyone, including new members, to attend any or all meetings – feel free to ask any questions!
We suggest you put this on your calendar so even if you know your project has nothing for you to do for a given Action Night, it will be there when the next one rolls around to remind you to check in! 🙂
