Help us spread the word or apply yourself for one of these key lead volunteer roles we need to fill to take Code for Philly to the next level
Join us June 5th — June 7th and build the next big thing for transportation in Philly.
May 2015 —- We continue to build / test / triage our latest apps on iOS on Android. We've been experiencing challenges with our HTML form we're using to collect our actual rider survey data. Our goal is to fix the current issues to allow for a beta test with the Bike Coalition staffers as soon as possible.
If you haven't already, please visit us at PhillyJazz.us.
The next phase of the project is to develop a mobile app, All That Philly Jazz Walk, a self-guided walking tour that would start at 11th and Market streets, the former location of the Earle Theater, and end at Broad and Carpenter streets, the former location of Union Local 274, the black musicians union whose members included Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane and Nina Simone. I would like to launch a prototype during DesignPhiladelphia (October 2015).
If you're jazzed about jazz, cultural heritage preservation or mobile apps, please join the project team!
But that wasn’t the only nerdy thing we did that weekend. We also participated in a health hackathon sponsored by Apps4Philly and Code for Philly. That’s right, the Health Department supports hacking. Especially when that hacking is about taking health information that’s already available and making it more useful. In anticipation, we worked with the folks at OIT to publish five sets of data that we hoped folks would use.
Not too serious, but we do want a team of people who are passionate about what Code for Philly as an organization is capable of accomplishing. We're building an Executive Team to get serious and get stuff done. And have some fun while we're at it:]
