Ready to Code for Buffalo? This Code & Coffee meetup offers designated time for project teams to get together in-person and get some real work done. There's no formal agenda for these meetups unlike our Civic Innovation Nights. Come join the movement using technology for a better Buffalo!
New to Code for Buffalo? We recommend first attending one of our monthly Civic Innovation Nights and checking out our Projects page to see how and where you can help (https://github.com/CodeForBuffalo/project-ideas). You can even create a brand new project! If you're ready to jump in, feel free to stop by!
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
• What do I need to know before showing up?
Don’t forget your computer! Code for Buffalo does not currently provide any devices, so if you need your computer to work be sure to bring it with you.
This is a free form hack session designed for project teams to concentrate on hitting milestones, so please be considerate if you see a group in deep conversation. We won’t necessarily plan on having any orientation session (dependent on captain availability)
• Who is this event for?
This event is for teams to work on their civic tech projects.
• Do I need to be a coder?
No! We need civic hackers of all varieties. Healthy civic tech projects have developers, designers, community partners, project managers/owners, and need lots of help. If you’re an experienced professional, we welcome you to contribute your expertise whatever it looks like.
