GoodApp

GoodApp is a cloud environment for the community development of socially responsible and transparent Web applications. It provides a shared infrastructure and pedagogy for the development of civic or "good" apps. This infrastructure includes educational components, developmental tools (editing, collaboration, versioning, and visualization), and simple mechanisms for deployment. Conceptually, we seek to understand the technical similarities of, and the sustainability challenges for, civic applications.
