A computer programmer who has been helping Middle Georgia is offering another Conversation on Technology on Thursday to describe ways governments, nonprofit groups and people can work better together with open data and new technologies.
The discussion is slated for 6-7:30 p.m. at Mercer Universitys Center for Collaborative Journalism, 1675 Montpelier Ave.
Nick Doiron, one of three Code for America fellows assigned to Macon, will review some of the work the organization has been doing. He will describe other outreach efforts, such as using Bibb County government maps to help a Habitat for Humanity chapter in the Lynmore Estates neighborhood.
The discussion is open to the public, but people are asked to register online at maconmaps.eventbrite.com.
Its open to everyone, and you dont need to come here with a huge mound of technical knowledge, Doiron said. We want to make technology thats useful to everyone in Macon.
