What we're about


Government can work for the people, by the people, in the digital age.

We are a community of volunteers who develop open-source projects as a Code for America Brigade (https://www.codeforamerica.org/) by focusing on open government, open data, great design, and social good in Baltimore.


While we always need more developers, Code for Baltimore welcomes designers, content creators, copywriters, storytellers, researchers, project managers, marketing specialists, and any other tech or government enthusiast!

We have two types of Meetups:

• Community Nights: networking events with members of the community and the group to discuss issues that could be solved with civic tech.

• Hack Nights: project nights where our members work on select projects to benefit Baltimore communities.


New to our community and interested in joining a project? Fill out this survey (https://goo.gl/forms/zZ2TYVAs23FHuXly1) so that we can learn more about you.
