As we close out 2016 and look back on our accomplishments, I had a chance to catch up with Joe Divis from AT&T. With many thanks to Joe, AT&T was our Presenting Sponsor for City as a Service Hackathon (CaaSH). Joe is the Executive Director-External Affairs for AT&T.
As the year comes to a close, we reflected on the lessons learned in 2016, and looked forward to 2017.
We got an advisory board!
I should have written this post weeks ago, but I hope you'll read it and consider joining our ops teams as either a lead or in a support role. Code for Philly is ready for take #2 on its leadership team. Read about why I think you should join and how it could be one of the most transformational experiences in your life.
Is your team ready for Project Demo Night? Below are some tips to help with your presentation. CaaSH Project Demo Night will be October 25th at Seer Interactive.
Reflecting on the CaaSH kickoff weekend, it's clear that there's a lot more to delivering on civic tech than code alone. Join us for demo night on Tuesday, October 25th, 6-9pm at the Seer Interactive offices in Northern Liberties. The event is free, but RSVP is required. Space is limited. http://www.meetup.com/Code-for-Philly/events/234433705/
Project Management can be a hard task for any group. With our Brigade members working as volunteers, fitting in their work around busy lives and work schedules, it can hard to get the project moving forward at times.
YadaGuru will be hosting a workshop with Southwest Leadership Academy Charter School to help college bound students use their app.
In early 2015, we rolled out our first leadership team. As Code for Philly has evolved, we’re looking for fresh blood to keep us moving in the right direction.

We like to make hackathons be about more than code and about more than products. With a new mayor and new priorities, a presidential primary and Democratic National Convention, a mess of new councilpersons, and more than a few groups abuzz about millenials in public office, there hasn’t been a better, or more important time, to be a civic hacker and improve Philly democracy. Read this post about how you can contribute to hacking democracy whether it’s with code or ideas. Join us 3/18-3/20!
