Open Cleveland

We are a Code for America Brigade, which means we're volunteers that contribute our talents toward improving the way our local governments and community organizations use the web. The Brigade is about action and you're here because you are someone who takes action.

• get work done on civic projects

• start a new project, or find one to join (all backgrounds welcome!)

• bounce ideas and get help from tech and government experts

• learn about open data, smart cities, and open government

Collaborate to build apps and visualizations, clean up unstructured data, catalog public datasets, create new projects to transform our region; check out an event on the calendar for more on how Civic Hack Nights work.

On Civic Hacking.

"A civic hacker is an open source software developer who uses his or her skills to make their community and country a better place. ... A civic hacker will just do something, not asking for permission, ignoring government bureaucracy, in order to build tools and technologies with a civic-minded bent."

-- Luigi Montanez
