Join educators, librarians, coders, designers, scientists, artists, technologists, and others at Mozilla’s Global Sprint, June 1-2, 2017! Global Sprint is designed to be a fast-paced, two-day event to hack and build projects for a healthy Internet.
Held at the Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center, Global Sprint in Omaha will focus on the creation of a new project, Omaha Parks. The city has no user-friendly portal for aiding the discovery of parks, or for searching or filtering parks based on their amenities. Omaha Parks will seek to bridge that gap by building an interactive map to aid citizens in discovering parks that fit their needs and wants.
Omaha Parks is an open source project and values open collaboration. Anyone wishing to take part in Global Sprint is free to come by anytime and stay for as short or as long as they’d like. And the collaboration continues afterwards on Github; if you’re unable to attend, discover the community online.
