Who are we?

Code for Philly is a community of civic technologists: We use tech and data as a means of civic engagement. We're what happens when civic-minded developers, designers, coders, organizers, and communicators come together to build a better Philadelphia for everyone. We apply our skills as technologists to problem solve alongside members of our communities and local government.

We meet frequently to work on a variety of projects (, ( towards a better, more connected and open city: PHL 2.0.

We welcome and encourage everyone with all skill levels to participate as we are firm believers in getting your hands dirty and learning by doing.

Why should you join?

As a CfP brigade member, you’ll get to work first hand on exciting projects that are making a huge difference for the city of Philadelphia. You’ll get to collaborate and learn with some of Philly’s leading technologists too!

You can join an existing project, create a new one, or even bring in something you're already working on and collaborate with CfP brigade members!
