Code for Philly

We're part of a national alliance of community organizers, developers, and designers that are putting technology to work in service of our local communities. We believe that government can work, for the people, by the people, in the digital age, if we all help.

Latest Project Activity

Nicholas Quigley  Snow-Capped Update #1

www.snow-capped.com is live and the registration form is built, but I would like to test just one happy-path user signup before officially opening up to people. So don't sign up just yet, but stay tuned!

All of the personal data that people will register with and transmit to the site is extremely sensitive, so the site was built with security in mind. I'm happy to share that after lots of research and configuration, snow-capped.com gets an A+ on Mozilla's Observatory security testing suite, which is a better grade that most Fortune 500 companies.

Matt Schaff  Resource Philly Map Update #2

Great news! Resource Philly Map (RPM) is pleased to announce its partnership with the Defender Association of Philadelphia. This new partnership empowers us to tailor our app around the needs of Philly Defenders' thousands of constituents.

RPM is designed to be the fastest way to connect people in need with social services in Philadelphia. We are actively developing our prototype, and we would love to involve more collaborators, including developers, project managers, designers, and business analysts. Please reach out on Slack under the channel #resource-philly-map.
