FRESNO, California — More than a dozen from the community came together to create a digital tool for public good.
Code for Fresno hosted its first hacknight Sunday at Root Access Hackerspace in the Tower District area. The group is currently in the process of creating a mapping tool that would help anyone find out who represents them on all levels of government.
The tool is particularly designed to help those in rural areas.
Sunday’s group included members of Code for Fresno, coders, designers government representatives and other community members. Anyone is welcome to join in on the effort of creating this map, regardless of experience.
“Coding might seem like a pretty high barrier to entry, but we are focused on finding ways for every single person to contribute no matter what their skills are,” said Code for Fresno co-captain Zachary Antoyan.
There are still many hacknights to come to get this map online. Click the links below to see Code for Fresno’s social media to find out how to connect with them:
