Today the Huffington Post Chicago published a piece highlighting the work of the Code for America fellows: Code For America In Chicago: Open311 Will Be City’s Next Big Tech Move. Snip:
Daniel X. O’Neil, executive director of the Smart Chicago Collaborative, wrote the CFA application for the city, and his group will be working with the CFA fellows throughout this process. He said the CFA team will create “a lot of reusable code,” which can then be transformed into anything that imaginative Chicagoans can dream up. In Philadelphia, for example, developers using CFA infrastructure and available data were able to create MuralApp, a mobile site that locates murals and other public art around the city.
