The foundation for an open source city is a resource for cities and citizens interested in improving their government through civic hacking. The book explores and defines the five elements of an open source city using Raleigh, North Carolina as a case study. See how the open source characteristics of collaboration, transparency, and participation are shaping the open government and open data movements.

This book showcases the open source culture, government policies, and economic development happening in Raleigh and acts as a guide for other cities to pursue their open source city brand.

I’ll be doing a book signing at the information desk in the Red Hat DevZone on Wednesday, May 3, 2017, from 9:45 to 10:15 am. Come get your signed copy while supplies last.
