January Open Work Meetup

We’ll be having our monthly open work meetup again at the Humphrey School on January 27th at 6pm. Bring yourself, your skills, your passion, and your ideas. We’ll bring pizza.

This month we welcome Kelly Clausen, policy and data analyst at Hennepin County’s Center of Innovation and Excellence to talk about the Center and Hennepin County’s upcoming Geo:Code Accessibility Jam and Code-a-thon.
