Join us at our weekly workshop to learn about technology, sharpen your skills, and help Philly at the same time! There are ample opportunities for people with any skill set and experience level to have an impact. Check out our website for a list of active projects (http://codeforphilly.org (http://codeforphilly.org/)) or just stop by and ask for a captain to help you get started.
This workshop is sponsored by Microsoft! Dave Voyles (a Microsoft tech evangelist) will give a quick talk about their open source tools and be available to talk more in-depth.

If this is your first Code for Philly, try to arrive on the early side to join our group orientation for new members at 6:30. If you can't make it until later that's fine too, just let the first person you run into know it's your first time at Code for Philly and they'll direct you to one of our organizers.
