What we're about

You can think of Code for BTV as a pro-bono digital agency working for the public good. We pick meaningful projects and do the research, design, architecture, coding, launch, and communications work to help important organizations work more effectively. And we do it as part of the national Code for America effort:

We work on our projects from concept to completion, so we need skills of all types. We have a meetup every other week, and are always talking on Slack (http://cfbtv-slackin.herokuapp.com). Come join us; someone out there needs your help.

All Code for BTV and Code for America events and their staff, presenters, and attendees are held to a Code of Conduct and an Anti-Harassment Policy (http://codeforbtv.org/policies/code-of-conduct/).

Civic Tech Lunch

Online event

[NOTE THE NEW FALL 2020 TIME - NOON] Code for BTV brings together teams of volunteer citizens and technologists to create new tools for civic-oriented and social justice organizations, solving meaningful problems for our community through digital technology. While in the past we held hack-nights as a way to focus our work, the pandemic-reality has made individuals' schedules wildly different. Moving forward we continue to explore what does and does not seem to work best. The current plan is to host our brigade's bi-weekly sync session over lunch on Tuesdays. Project teams will determine a recurring bi-weekly meeting time of their own. Some may meet late, some early, some might meet over lunch another day of the week. All members are encouraged to join the Tuesday lunch meetings to catch up on how the various projects are doing and if they need help, as well as what new opportunities exist, what upcoming events should be on radar, and to share their own input and thoughts on how we can work together to build more efficient and effective delivery of government and non-profit services. Given the new structure of meeting during the pandemic, onboarding of new members will happen in a separate MeetUp event - usually only when we know we have new members that need onboarding. But we welcome everyone to attend the bi-weekly meeting without the onboarding - feel free to ask any questions! If it's your first time, in an hour or less you should know what's going on, have met some new peers, and have the opportunity to join a project team.
