|Participants gathered in the think|haus lounge to kickoff the event|
Bringing together developers, designers, city leaders, and citizens, the event was a unique partnership that showed local talent can achieve local solutions.
Since our meet-up, the Open Hamilton team has worked to get the project ready for final polish and launch.
Led by the efforts Alex Wagner and James Arlen, the source code of Change By Us has been modified and launched on the OH server.
Our citizen contributors have created a list of improvements and modifications to Change By Us that will enable our city to better measure feedback and suggestions as we all work to improve civic engagement.
The Change By Us project is now in its third phrase of development and we are in a position to build Hamilton's reputation as a locale with a strong web development sector that international powerhouses should local in.
Join us Thursday at 7pm at think|haus, 25 Dundurn St North (Hamilton), for our launch hackfest.
