Join us for a Civic Tech Social happy hour at Urban Village Brewing Company!

Formerly known as our Open House Night, nothing has changed - it's still a great opportunity to discuss, share, and learn about civic technology and Code for Philly's civic tech projects (but with a better name). Come socialize with the community, learn more about how Code for Philly works, and maybe form a group for a project you're thinking about!

This event is open to everyone - newcomers as well as veterans. Code for Philly Leadership team members will be in attendance to answer any questions and make introductions! Code for Philly Leads will have Code for Philly stickers on!

If you want to learn about civic technology and Code for Philly before coming out, check out our website for a list of active projects (, join the Slack team, or reach out to us at [masked] .

This event is for anyone looking to get involved in the civic tech space, applying their expertise to help solve social problems in Philadelphia.
