Introducing Chi Hack Night
Published on May 12, 2015 by Derek Eder
The Open Gov Hack Night is now Chi Hack Night!
I’m happy to announce the new name and logo for our event.
Since we started 3 years and 155 events ago, our event has grown into a community all its own. We emerged out of the Open Government movement here in Chicago, and have become something much more.
We’re not just about Open Gov anymore. We’re about Chicago.
And we have a new website, too!
Here’s a few highlights:
Events - Browse the full list of all 155 events we’ve hosted at the Chi Hack Night, including speakers, agendas, videos (thanks to Christopher Whitaker and Smart Chicago), and photos.
Breakout groups - See our ever growing list of Breakout groups and their topic facilitators, including pictures of their beautiful faces.
Leadership Council - See every Leadership Council meeting we’ve held along with meeting notes and keep tabs on when the next one is happening.
As with all of our projects, we’re constantly looking to make the Chi Hack Night website better and more informative for everyone. Pull Requests are always welcome!
