This month's Learn Night guest: Bobby Thompson, Xaqt data and the Living Lab platform

Xaqt creates products that transform how organizations and governments use their data. Xaqt has been a close partner with Kansas City, Mo. in the implementation of its downtown smart city corridor, working to develop data visualization and analysis tools, including the Map of the Month in late 2017 according to Harvard's Data-Smart City Solutions. Just last week they received a Smart 50 Award together with KCMO and Avis for managing the data of the joint Mobility Lab. Hear about their digital technologies for smart cities, their work with KCMO, and how they help provide an interface to Cisco's Kinetic platform.

Please RSVP so that we know how many snacks & drinks to bring.

Civic Heroes of all types welcome! This event is for coders and non-coders alike -- as long as you're interested in making government more transparent and building interesting things for our city, you're more than welcome!

Bring a laptop: If you intend on getting some hands-on hacking done (it's ok if you can't but it definitely helps to have one).

If you have something you'd like to work on or are excited about, please let us know via the meetup or at the hack night itself. We are growing our initiative and the energy comes from the community.
