Some of us are collaborating with a group from Code for Pittsburgh and planning to send a questionnaire to all of the gubernatorial candidates for Pennsylvania. We plan to publish the responses ahead of the primary election on May 20th. The goal of this is to start a conversation about open data at the state level during the governor's race.
If you're so inclined, please write comments in this document to give us feedback on what we have prepared so far. Please comment before Monday, March 24th.
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 alternating Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and work on a variety of projects building 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.
