A local tech-minded group hosted an open data jam session earlier this afternoon in downtown South Bend.

The group Hack Michiana introduced South Bend’s brand new digital portal where citizens and residents in the city of South Bend can access a large amount of city information.

Web industry professionals work with local municipal governments, which helps promote openness and efficiency so all citizens understand.

But Hack Michiana wants more input, and that is why both members and residents brainstorm to maximize the data’s usefulness.

So far only 42 cities throughout the country have an open-source data system.
