The HUB is a community bulletin board system that provides information to the Red Hook neighborhood. Information is supplied by and maintained by the community. The HUB is a public information system, collecting and displaying information related to community needs during crisis and non-crisis conditions.
During the Red Hook hackathon, we created a website for Red Hook Hub. Developers created a back end submittal system that allows the users to post their information using multiple input fields. Users can select from event categories and create postings for both the digital site and the analog bulletin boards. A back end system administrator interface was also created, allowing the moderators to evaluate all submissions and create a weekly event posting.
