Join Open Twin Cities and Hennepin County for one of the most important civic tech events in the Twin Cities. Geo:Code 2017 is a series of open data workshops and conversations to connect people who live, work and govern in Hennepin County. This year we will have two tracks: a county camp unconference and, as in years past, coding space for an open hackathon. Participants are welcome to participate in either or both tracks and to switch through out the weekend.

Who is Geo:Code for?
Geo:Code is for everyone: residents, government personnel, novices, experts, technologists and non-technologists. This event is for anybody who wants to learn, discuss, and brainstorm about government data and technology. Whether you are a student, an artist, an educator, a developer, a parent, a GIS professional or a business owner you are welcome.
Over the past two years discussions, sessions, and projects covered topics as diverse as service design, accessibility, transit and bicycle mapping, recreation, an app to reach representatives, finding free, public meeting spaces, lo-fi prototyping, usability, food access, arts integration, and why data matters to non-technology community.
The format is part County Camp and part Code Space. The County Camp is a modified unconference format and participants will help set the agenda. Participants don’t need any technology to participate. The Code Space is a where participants can pick a project or problem to tackle it with a team. If attendees plan to code, they should bring any technology needed such as a laptop or tablet. Participants are welcome to partake in any or all tracks and to switch between tracks during the weekend.
