The Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) hosted the final Code Public Health event on Thursday, August 13. Running every Monday evening from June 15 through August 3, the Code Public Health meetup events brought together public health professionals, public health students, web developers, data scientists, graphic designers, sponsors, and others to advance public health education, research, practice, and advocacy using technology. Teams worked on ongoing association projects or brought their own ideas to improve the health of our communities in the U.S. and around the world. Thursday’s culminating event gave teams an opportunity to show off their work and demo the technology projects they created. Four teams presented on projects ranging from gamification through digital badging, customizing Google Forms, and live in-browser data updates using the Meteor open source platform.
