Check out the data and APIs available for #DemHack2016!
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!

Our first signature hackathon of the year is coming up, and we need your help planning the best DemHack yet.
Now and then we like to reflect on the great work you - the brigade! - are bringing to Philadelphia. Dave Brindley saw a problem in his neighborhood and set out to fix it. Now, his project NotInPhilly.org is expanding to other areas in the city.
Good News Everyone! From time to time, there are changes that impact the brigade as a whole. On those occasions, we’ll make a brigade update (like the one you’re about to read). We've grown a lot over the last year at Code for Philly, and we have even more planned for 2016. Keep reading to see what’s coming up and what's changing!
