Nerds in NoMa Presents Hack DC 1/19


The Nerds in NoMa series returns Tuesday with Hack DC. The discussion will focus on using civic hacking, open data, and technology innovations to improve the District. A panel moderated by Martin Austermuhle of WAMU will include Matt Bailey, Director of Technology Innovation at The Office of the Chief Technology Officer, Emily Brown of International Economic Development Council, Traci Hughes, Director of the D.C. Office of Open Government and Aliya Rahman, Tech Community Organizer.

Nerds in NoMa is a thinking person's happy hour. There's a free panel discussion every third Thursday (6-8pm) from January until April. It's a chance to explore and exchange ideas with friends over beer, wine, and popcorn. The event is free, but space is limited. RSVP to reserve your spot.

The full lineup of Nerds in NoMa events for 2016 is:
Jan. 19: Hack D.C.
Feb. 16: Whose Art?
March 15: Urban Adventure
April 19: Capital Climate Change

Nerds in NoMa was initially conceived of as part of the “Lobby Project,” a partnership between the NoMa BID and the D.C.  Office of Planning’s Temporary Urbanism program to demonstrate that sterile office lobbies can be easily transformed into vibrant public spaces. Over the last three years, NoMa’s Lobby Project has proven that community, conversation and art (courtesy of the NoMa BID’s partnership with Washington Project for the Arts), can come together in a private office lobby without danger to persons or property. Many thanks go to the courageous property owner, Principal Real Estate Investors, and property managers at Polinger, for enabling this to happen.
