Head to Philly for Code for America’s mega-gathering of civic technologists

The nonprofit is hosting a Brigade Congress Oct. 13–15. It's where Code for Baltimore and other civic-hacking groups will swap ideas and talk shop.

Full disclosure: Technical.ly is co-organizing this event with Code for America.
Code for Baltimore, it’s time to represent Charm City well.

Ours and other local Code for America brigades are convening in Philadelphia Oct. 13–15 for the civic-hacking nonprofit’s inaugural Brigade Congress — and Technical.ly is taking part as an organizing partner.

Get tickets

Tickets are $100, though there is also a pay-what-you-can model for active brigade members. The weekend will be an unconference featuring CfA brigade volunteers from around the world, joined by civil servants, civic technologists and other leaders. Be ready to share your stories on what has worked, what hasn’t and how we can apply those lessons to future wins. We’ll talk about shared values and learn how brigades across the country are working for change.

We’ll also continue the discussion on preventing volunteer burnout that took place in Baltimore at a CfA National Advisory Council meeting earlier this summer.

Here’s who CfA wants to attend: civil servants, technologists and others organizing with civic technology in mind.

One of the goals of the Congress will be to build alignment around the CfA network’s core vision, mission, values and operating principles, so organizers are sharing this draft for feedback. Details on submitting sessions will come as the event date nears, said CfA Brigade Manager Christopher Whitaker.
