Code the City is a charity which uses tech and data for civic good. We believe that a world where everyone understands at least a little of how to use code and data, is a better place. For over 6 years we've worked with local service providers in the public and third sectors to run 21 hack events  weekend-long sessions with a separate but defined theme.  We've also become advocates for, and trainers in, the better use the Wikimedia suite of platforms: Wikipedia, Wikidata and Wiki Commons - assisting local institutions to understand how to use these platforms to better engage with their audiences and integrate their online collections data. We're always looking for ways to help people learn to use tech and data to enhance their lives. We're enthusiastic about the transformative power of technology and data - and are always keen to share that knowledge and enthusiasm with others!
