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 member of Code for America brigade program, 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 work on our projects, or brainstorm on current issues and activities around Jersey City, New Jersey. It's actually a lot of fun, with great people.
On May 31st 2014, Open JC hosted it's first Hackathon, and the first hackathon in Jersey City.
We are currently planning our next Fall 2014 Hackathon.
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.
