Come put your talents to use to improve our community, or perhaps take on one of the challenges that were posed nationally.
The Branch is happy to be hosting the Michiana team that is participating in the National Day of Civic Hacking. We feel that it is important to support engaged citizens and the technology community as they get together to have fun and try to do interesting things.
“Hack” is just another word for tinkering or innovating. It’s perfectly legal, and quite fun. On June 2, join us to take on an interesting challenge. Do you have an idea for how to make our community better? Is there something you would like to do? Bring your ideas. If you just want to show up and join a team that forms, that will be great.
This is an event for the Michiana area, whether you are from Niles, Mishawaka, Goshen, or anywhere else.
You can register for the event through the Hack Michiana event site. It’s just $6 to attend. Lunch will be provided at the event.
Join the Hack Michiana Facebook group to participate in the conversation online.

We’re happy that the JMS building owner has accommodated our need for extra space, and that the Internet and wireless connection, hooked up by Kinetic IT, provide a nice infrastructure for this event to take place.
See you on June 2.
