Over the past three 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.
