Thursday‎, ‎August‎ ‎30‎, ‎2018 in Washington, DC:



This is a meetup for coders who build transportation-related projects. The August meetup is our first time with a train theme. Seeking projects about Amtrak (or MARC or VRE). Any suggestions for fun projects? Format is show & tell: apps, hacks, web pages, dataviz, maps... anything built with code.


Please join us if you can make it!

A sort of Seatguru for Amtrak. Shows the benefits of each room and seat, based on space, features, etc.
