Important and awesome! --> In addition to joining this Meetup, please check out our listserv at: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/dc-cfa-brigade 

Code for DC is the DC chapter of Code for America Brigade – a national network of civic hackers who contribute their skills toward using the web as a platform for local government and community service. 

We're building new tools and liberating data to help DC work better. Come help!

This meeting we'll work on projects ranging from education to fiscal transparency to tree mapping. If you're already part of a project team, bring your project and be ready to put people to work. If not, that's great! Bring your creativity and your laptop, if you've got one; we'll find something awesome for you to do.

After some quick announcements we'll break out into groups to get to work. Read more about current projects at http://www.codefordc.org/projects

    I just missed the Marc, next train gets me there about 6:45, is it still worth it?

    Dare I ask what the parking situation is like? I live in NoVA so I can drive in in around 45 mins or metro in about twice that. I'd rather not spend as much time commuting as I do at the event!

      There are some parking garages nearby, which are pricey but convenient. You'll need to check on what time you have to be out so that you don't get your car locked in overnight.

      Most of the nearby on-street parking is NO parking from 4-6:30pm, so if you drive up at exactly 6:30 then it is possible to get a spot. You will be late to the event, and you will have to deal with feeding the meter--or risk getting a ticket.

      Driving isn't ideal either, but it can be done.

      18 and N is actually one of the more parking friendly areas after 6:30 because once rush hour finishes there should be a good deal of spaces that open up nearby. However this is also the heart of DC traffic, so while spots open up from the 6:30 parking restriction, getting to them may be a pain.

      If you do drive I would recommend looking south of N than north of it. The closer you head to Dupont, the harder it will be to park. The other direction is businesses.

      Its also a 5-10 minute walk from F. West metro on the Orange line.
