Details

We have a pitch tonight with Mindy Cuppy from the City Of Sacramento, hoping to build https://www.opendisclosure.io, but for Sacramento!

Let's discuss. If you want to get involved in advance, check out open disclosure for Oakland, and consider how we might build that for Sacramento.

Come by and get involved in civic innovation! We need software developers, designers, project managers, and leaders to help us build open source civic software and projects for the public good. Jump on a project and build some new skills while helping the community or come and pitch a great idea for the group to work on.

We will fuel your efforts every week with free pizza.

Code For Sacramento, a brigade of Code for America, is a group of community organizers, developers, and designers that are putting technology to work in service of our local communities. We focus on building civic oriented open source software (see our GitHub page https://github.com/code4sac). We believe that government can work, for the people, by the people, in the digital age, if we all help.

Agenda:
1. Introduction to Code For Sacramento and Code of Conduct
2. Announcements
3. Pitches - open time to pitch an idea for an open source civic innovation project to the group
4. Standups - updates on ongoing projects
5. Open time for hacking on civic innovation projects
