Smart Cities? Public Code! (February 2018 - April 2019)

This project aimed to further develop the concept of public code. More concretely: How should we understand public code, and how can we create it? What kind of technological and institutional arrangements are needed to shift towards the production of public code?

In a series of workshops, we built a network of collaborators to identify directions for the development of public code, and set up research and development projects and grant applications.

Smart Cities? Public Code! was a collaboration between the City of Amsterdam, the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences and Vurb.Agency.
