This will be the first meeting of the Code for America Brigade in Hoboken. Code for America Brigade is a nation-wide group of folks who are interested in using civic tech to make our community better. Developers, community organizers, government officials, designers...all improvers welcome.
Our first meeting will be a planning kickoff--and to get a great window into what's next for Hoboken: we have invited Juan Melli, the City of Hoboken's Communications Manager, to talk to us about what Hoboken's city directors have identified as their top needs.
We will also have an update from Anna, the co-founder of the Jersey City brigade, Open JC, about what they're up to.
