Code for Philly presentation started out with a definition of Code For America.
Interview Special Interest “Fellows” to use technology to improve our society. SEPTA example: budgets, schedule access, etc. Code For America makes using SEPTA easier and more useful for citizens.
They collect a lot of data for these projects. They built a 311 app…Fir example the pothole reporting (or graphiti reporter). You can take a pic of either and submit it to the city to fix.
Well how does this benefit me? What languages do you use to code? How long are your internships? Are there any apps that are fun yet helpful (instead of just bettering Philly)? How many app projects are you working on at the same time?
What is your feedback?
