We are a Code for America brigade — a volunteer civic innovation organization that welcomes citizens, coders, designers, data geeks, policy wonks and community activists with an interest in solving community problems through the use of technology. 

Our goal is to help open, improve, and engage local governments in the San Jose area, and to pursue projects that solve real problems in our communities.

We hold bi-monthly "civic hack nights" in which our members work on a range of civic tech projects, such as building tools and services on top of open data. 

We meet every 2nd and 4th Thursday at The Tech Museum of Innovation from 6:30pm-9:00pm.

You can learn more on the Code for San Jose website, and keep up-to-date via Twitter and Facebook.
