Next Meetup

• What we'll do Want to help make the NRV a better place for everyone? Join us to help work on one of our existing projects or bring suggestions of your own! Don't know how to code? That's ok! We're always looking for people who can bring other knowledge and skills to the group, like public outreach, insights into the projects we're working on, or just testing out what we're creating and giving feedback. Just bring your love for civic engagement (and a laptop)! This meeting we'll work some more on our projects, including the park finder! • What to bring Laptop

What we're about

A Code for America Brigade focused on municipal innovation in southwest Virginia.

Learn about us at­

Join other developers, designers, data geeks, civic leaders, organizers, and idea-makers who volunteer to help the governments and civic orgs of the New River Valley adopt open web technologies.

Our meetings are casual, fun "civic hack nights" where we try to solve local civic problems through technology. We're always working on multiple projects at once, so you're welcome to sit back and "watch the magical chaos" of creation, or dive in with something that interests you.

Standing Agenda:

• Intros

• Project updates

• Topic (optional)


We currently meet every other Thursday at TechPad in downtown Blacksburg. See the location and some parking options. (
