Code for Los Angeles is the Los Angeles Code for America Brigade, a network of civic-minded technologists who contribute their skills toward using the web as a platform for local government and community service.

We connect the people in government to local hackers to solve real problems! It's fulfilling work that will lead you to meet some incredible people.

To get an idea of what we are all about, founder of Code for America, Jennifer Pahlka, talks at TED 2012 about her experiences and views on maintaining a better government through code.
