Hey all, we are approaching 25 events from all over the world with
*details* filled in already. Share-a-thon.

It is fascinating to see what is coming in so far. I've added an org
GitHub account to the columns for the first time. This should make it
much easier to follow code development across local civic tech groups
around the world.

Please add yours or crowd-source the 100+ events where we only have a
place and event website (adding the local hashtag at least):


Also, in terms of publicizing your events for free - the Open
Government and Civic Technology Facebook Group just crossed the 3,000
member mark. So definitely join and promote your open data events


We have lots of members who join because we use our Google Ad grant to
promote the group ... they may well be in your city but not know about
your efforts.

Also, if you want advice on how to get more folks to show up at your
Open Data Day/Code Across event, read this in-depth e-outreach guide:
