*What is Code for San Jose?*
Code for San José is a volunteer organization made up of makers, designers, developers, and subject matter experts who come together to use tech to solve civic problems.
• Learn more about our current projects (http://www.codeforsanjose.com/docs/projects/).
• We are meeting at ActionSpot co-working studio and startup incubator https://www.myactionspot.com/membership.html
• Parking: There is a parking lot on the side and behind ActionSpot, as well as street parking all around the space.
We've found it helpful to be clear on what Code for San José is, and what it isn't:
*Code for San José is:*
• a place people gather to work on open-source projects that benefit our community
*Code for San José is not:*
• 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 (http://www.codeforsanjose.com/docs/data/) available to us and our projects (http://www.codeforsanjose.com/docs/projects/), and start thinking about a project you might find interesting to work on.
