Open Government Ideas

Open-source select City-created Civic Apps

The City maintains an extensive portfolio of apps (http://www.nyc.gov/html/digital/html/apps/apps.shtml) and it seeks to enable Government as a Platform.

And there is no better way for the City to seed Civic Innovation by showing would-be Civic Hackers how to use the City as a platform by sharing the source code for select civic apps.

In this way, the City can crowdsource development and bug reporting of these Civic Apps.

Perhaps, even Apps created by the newly created Code Corps can be published in a public github repo.
