We hold Civic Hack Nights twice a month where members use their skills to make San Jose, and the South Bay, a better place. Typical hack nights have the following structure:

-6:30-6:45pm: Mingling, chatting, eating pizza
-6:45pm-7pm: Introductions, updates, and project share outs.
-7pm-8:45pm: Work on projects in teams or as individuals
-8:45pm-9pm: Share progress with group and wrap-up

We welcome new members! We've found it helpful to be clear on what Code for San Jose is, and what it isn't:

Code for San Jose is:

-a place people gather to work on open-source projects that benefit our community.

Code for San Jose isn't:

-an organization that teaches people how to code
-always prepared to pair you with a project on day one. That said, it's a good idea to look through the open data available to us ( and start thinking about a project you might find interesting to work on.

Before the meeting:

[Agenda for the meeting ( - check back the week of for an update list of projects and their needs. Feel free to hop into the slack channel ( and github ( ahead of time]

At your first meeting, we'll give you an overview of the organization and tell you about on-going projects some members are leading.

Pizza will be provided thanks to our generous sponsor Microsoft. Bring your ideas, enthusiasm, and if you can, a laptop.
