Join us for our monthly hackathon to work on the open source Collaboration Tree (cTree) demo site: a collaborative design/innovation web platform. Work with other contributors in LA and online to develop this exciting new open source technology as a community. Attendees are encouraged to join one or more of the teams working on a specific part of the project. For newer programmers and designers, open source project teams are a great way to build up your resume.Programmers: get experience with Google's Polymer platform and web components (no web experience needed)Designers: help shape the user experience for this uniquely complex projectEveryone Else: learn more about the project and how you can get involved earlyBefore the eventWe recommend joining our Slack group and checking out the project before the event, as well as signing up for GitHub if you don't already have an account.
