An open conversation online about what we're doing now and what's next.
We are a Code for America Brigade, which means we're volunteers that contribute our talents toward improving the way our local governments and community organizations use the web.
Friendly Code and Code for America share a Code of Conduct that applies to our activities, events, and digital forums. We do not tolerate discrimiation or harrassment of any kind. Check out our full Code of Conduct.
Brigade is about action and you're here because you are someone who takes action. See what kind of things brigades do, or watch the inspirational TED talk given by Jennifer Pahlka, the founder of Code for America.
View our Meetup site or check out our Facebook page for the next location and time. We meet the first and third Tuesday of every month. Some meetings are focused on a specific project, at others we organize our efforts and brainstorm new projects. Our meetups are casual and anyone is welcome to join. Food and drink are often inolved.
Can't make it to a meetup? No problem. We collaborate on projects, ask for help, and post wins to our Friendly Code forum where you can get new posts in email and reply. We welcome anyone to sign-up...you might just see something you're interested in helping with.
Interested in what we're doing, but too busy to get involved just yet? Sign up for our very occasional email newsletter. You can also follow our progress on Facebook or Twitter. We'll be launching new initiatives throughout the year and we'll make sure you know about them and how you can help.
