"Open Miami?" Like, the tennis tournament?
No. You're thinking the Miami Open.
Open Miami, on the other hand, wants to champion the use of open-source tech in building municipal services and programs that make Miami a better place.
We started seven years ago as Code for Miami, volunteers that met over pizzas every week to use technology to make Miami a better place to live. We continue that mission to this day through a network of community organizing, educational events related to technology, civics, and issues, and promote and facilitate tech projects based on available technologies and open data.
