The Civic Engagement Launch is quickly approaching. Because we don't want to wait for you ideas, we created the Project Idea Submission Form. Below we outline what we are looking for, and what we will do with your ideas.
Philadelphians aren’t known for their patience. If we see a problem, we don’t wait around for permission, and we don't wait for someone else to fix it. Code for Philly: Civic Engagement Launchpad encourages everyone to join in this tradition.
Project Cognoma and Think Company working together
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.
Datasets for Caash hackathon
Code for Philly isn’t your typical group of hackers. And City as a Service Hackathon (CaasH) isn't your typical hackathon. Join us for a month-long co-creation hackathon to build solutions that meet real, community issues in Philadelphia.
