We are a newly-launched 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 currently meet every other Thursday at NextSpace San Jose from 6:30pm-9pm.

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

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
