What we're about

We are a Code for America (https://codeforamerica.org/) brigade in Chicago. Code for Chicago is committed to fostering an inclusive space for civic technologists and community members to collaborate.

We have a Code of Conduct (https://github.com/Code-and-Coffee-Uptown-Brigade/codeofconduct), please read it. Let us know if there's a problem. This is a safe space for everyone
