What we're about
Open San Mateo County, aka OpenSMC (http://opensmc.org/), is a Code for America (http://www.codeforamerica.org/) Brigade serving the County of San Mateo and its 16 cities, 4 towns and unincorporated communities. We bring together technologists, local governments, community leaders, subject-matter experts and private citizens to develop open source apps that help solve community-wide issues and help local governments deliver public services more effectively, improve agency collaboration, increase community engagement, and promote data-driven decision making. OpenSMC holds weekly hack nights and hackathons throughout the year. Contribute to the betterment of San Mateo County, build your own portfolio of work or work on someone else's cool project (see our projects list (http://opensmc.org/projects)), and meet new (and different!) people!
We meet weekly in Redwood City to work on projects and have fun at hack night.
