Admiral Grace Hopper always said the one thing she is most proud of is her service in the United States Navy. In the U.S., we celebrate Memorial Day to remember and honor those who sacrifice daily and proudly serve in the military. In the tech world, we have the tremendous opportunity to say thank you to Grace Hopper, to the men and women who have and are serving in the military and to give back to your local community through #HackForChange!
This weekend, May 31 – Jun 1, 2014, many around the world will participate in National Day of Civic Hacking. Please join your local chapter to help kickoff special projects or current projects that will have tremendous impact in your local community. Some of the projects include:
