What we're about

Code for Boston is a Code for America Brigade - a volunteer civic innovation organization created by Boston-area developers, designers, urban planners, data geeks, and researchers with an interest in solving civic and social problems through the use of creative technology.

We feel that Boston was the driving force in the creation of Government 1.0; we should be leading the way for Gov 2.0. We seek to leverage the revolutionary spirit of New England to help open, improve, and engage our local governments across the Greater Boston area, and to pursue projects that solve real problems in our communities.

In conjunction with our fellow Brigades across the country, we aim to provide a focal point for community-based civic innovation and technology projects in the Boston area. We meet weekly at the Cambridge Innovation Center in Kendall Square, from 7 - 9:30pm. Please review our group's Code of Conduct (https://codeforboston.hackpad.com/Code-of-Conduct-Aq9NpCuTIZC) before attending.
