Code for Philly
Code for Philly introduces itself with the line, "Bringing Philadelphians together to upgrade our city," and gives the following descriptive information:
We use tech and data as a mode of civic engagement. We’re making Philadelphia into the city we know it can be by bringing together a community of people dedicated to using their talents to improve their home, and themselves.
Founded under Code for America’s inaugural Brigade Program in 2012, Code for Philly currently hosts a weekly Meetup, regular hackathons and acts as an incubator for civic apps across the city.
Code for Philly is non-partisan and non-political. We’re civic and social entrepreneurs, self-directed learners, and proactive community members. Some of us are thinkers, designers, makers, and even coders, but we’re all engaged citizens ready to make an impact on the place we call home.
At Code for Philly, process is the product. We bring people together to learn from one another, network, develop leadership skills, manage projects from end-to-end, work in teams, and build tech.
