We've had a fantastic time with you all these last four weeks exploring and learning about this wonderful city. Sadly, our residency is coming to an end this week, but we'll be back! Come on by and join us from 5 to 7pm for one last lager before we head back to San Francisco.
With Fellowly Love, CfA Philly
Alex, Michelle, & Liz
p.s. We're a non-profit on a budget, but we have a bit of money left for outreach… so the first 25 folks who show up get a lager on us!
Code for Philly—a Code for America Brigade—would like to invite you to come join us. We are PHL-based developers, designers, catalogers, organizers, and other citizens working to build a better Philadelphia by applying web technology to government and communities. We meet weekly, usually Tuesday evenings, and work on a variety ofprojectsbuilding PHL 2.0. You can join an existing project, create a new one, or bring in something you're already working on and get CfP to help out. We welcome and encourage everyone with all skill levels to participate as we believe that you learn best by doing.
