A casual weekly meetup where we work on projects and hack open data.
An open conversation online about what we're doing now and what's next.
We are a Code for America Brigade, which means we're volunteers that contribute our talents toward improving the way our local governments and community organizations use the web. Brigade is about action and you're here because you are someone who takes action. See what kind of things brigades do, or watch the inspirational TED talk given by Jennifer Pahlka, the founder of Code for America.
View our Meetups site for our next location and time. We meet every other Tuesday where we hack (develop) our projects, or brainstorm on current issues and activities around Jersey City, New Jersey. It's actually a lot of fun, with great people and usually food/drink.
Can't make it to a meetup? No problem. We collaborate on projects, ask for help, and post wins to our Open JC forum where you can get new posts in email and reply. We welcome anyone to sign-up... you might just see something you're interested in helping with.
