Are you interested in computer coding with a team, or on your own, with the possibility of winning some money at the same time? The Canadian Open Data Experience (CODE) might be just what you’re looking for!code CODE is a 48-hour coding sprint or ‘hackathon’ taking place this February 20-22 across the country. At this year’s event, teams will gather in Fredericton and all over Canada to try and build the best app with federal government data from Canada’s Open Government Portal. At the start of the event, a category will be chosen for the app to be built around, from Youth, Commerce, or Quality of Life. If you’re interested in joining in on the competition, visit the CODE website to learn more. Want to meet with other coders, or ask some questions of your own? Visit the Citizens Code  Fredericton headquarters at 469 King Street (2nd floor) for all things Open Data.
