#314 The opportunity of civic tech



It is said that Chicago has one of the strongest and most vibrant civic technology communities in the world, but what even is civic tech? What are the opportunities in the civic tech space and what has changed over the past few years that make these opportunities possible?

Derek Eder, Founder of Chi Hack Night and DataMade, will answer these questions (and more!) as he shows off some of the civic websites and applications he has built and collaborated on, including Chicago Lobbyists, ClearStreets, Second City Zoning, and Chicago’s Million Dollar Blocks.


RSVP required Braintree now requires all attendees to RSVP beforehand. Walk-ins will not be allowed!

ASL This event will have an American Sign Language interpreter.

Food Food and drinks will be provided. We encourage attendees to bring their own water bottles to reduce waste.
