*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/).
The closest parking garage in the same building is $8 flat rate. For a map of all downtown parking: https://parksj.org/parking-map/. There is no parking validation at this venue.
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.
