I'm looking forward to join more than a hundred other programmers and civic activists at the Code Across 2015 event in SF, part of Code Across 2015, an event collaboratively organized by Code for America as part of International Open Data Day.
The scope of Open Data Day can be seen from this very long list of other Open Data Day hackathons and events (Google Document, not sure where it came from).
And if this event is your kind of thing and you want to make it your day job, get in touch with me. At Xcential, we're always looking for civic-minded programmers who are interested in working on browser-based applications for writing, amending and publishing law. We work with the state of California, Hong Kong, the U.S. Congress and others to bring law into the digital age.
