We are starting work on the first DIYcity project, and we need your help in building it.
It will be an app along the lines of the discussion on TrafficTweet that, when built, will give residents of local areas updates to their mobile phones about traffic problems around them.
The app will be open source and will be built in such a way that it can be easily adapted to work for any city or town in the U.S. (and if possible outside the U.S. as well).
- 1 - 2 web developers, well-versed in all of the things web developers should be well-versed in these days, specifically working with RSS and APIs.
- a UI designer
- a project wrangler
This is entirely a volunteer project.
Everyone who participates will be credited on the work.
If you'd like to help, write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please forward this to anyone who might be interested.
UPDATE 2/4: This app has been designed and spec'd (see spec here) and is now in development. Release will be posted to the Main Group.
