What we're about

Are you looking for a meaningful volunteer opportunity? Code for PDX is here to help! We are designers, developers, and product managers, both experts and learners, coming together to make our city better for everyone. We welcome all skill levels and disciplines - no coding experience is necessary.

Code for PDX is a Code for America Brigade, or local chapter, focused on improving the lives of residents of Portland. Code for PDX is made up of individuals who are interested in changing Portland for the better. We work with local government to fix local services, utilize open data to improve citizen knowledge, and work for the betterment of all. We are just getting started, so there are plenty of opportunities to use your skills. Even if you are not a tech type, we can still have opportunities for you to contribute. So come by and become part of a movement to improve our community!

Find us at https://www.codeforpdx.org/ and come to our Monthly Product Demo Nights (check the Events page for the next one).

Civic Tech Meetup!

Needs a location

Join us for our first in-person meeting since Covid started. This meeting will be more of a meet and greet with less formality than we are used to with our online meetings. Come to hang out or work on a project.
We will be meeting on the patio outside.

👉 For more information, check out our website (which is also a project, so if you have ideas for it, come and contribute!): https://www.codeforpdx.org/

Monthly Project Demo Night

Link visible for attendees

Join us for our monthly project demo night! Our project teams meet weekly for work sessions, and once a month we all come together to catch up, see what's new, and welcome new volunteers.

AGENDA
∙ General announcements
∙ Product demos
∙ New volunteer onboarding
∙ Q&A

REGISTRATION
We'll post the Zoom link on this page an hour before the event starts.

If you're new to Code for PDX, demo night is the perfect time for you to check out what we're working on, see what project sparks your interest, and join a team. Here's the scoop:
👉 We build civic tech projects that solve local problems. Every project has a team lead who coordinates the work of all the contributing volunteers, as well as the requirements from the community partner, a local non-profit or government agency, who will use the finished project.
👉 Our stack is generally Flask and ReactJS, with some HTML and CSS. And we don't just need developers - we also need UX Designers, Project Managers, and Product Managers!
👉 All skill levels are welcome, this is an inclusive learning experience for everyone.
