Learn how to get involved in Open Seattle!

Part volunteer orientation, part mixer for meeting others interested in civic technology, our monthly orientation is a chance to learn what Open Seattle members are up to and what kinds of roles you can play.

All skills & skill levels welcome! You may have noticed that we recently renamed Code for Seattle to Open Seattle. We did this in part to better reflect that the work we do involves far more than code. We are also designers, writers, urban planners, community organizers, & more.

Attend this event to find projects to work on, to meet people that might want to join your project, & to get a better sense of what Open Seattle is all about.
