The U.S. government has a department looking to spread open source projects, and members will be in Baltimore this week.

Code.gov is looking to promote reuse of open source code within the government to cut down on duplicating development work, and spread use of the code throughout the country. On April 26 event at Spark Baltimore, team members from Code.gov, the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Presidential Innovation Fellowship are among those invited to be at a meetup to share more. Held from 12-3 p.m., the event will feature talks from the invited guests about what they’re working on and Federal Source Code Policy, as well as how it can apply locally, said organizing team member Melanie Shimano.

“We’re hoping this will be a great way to introduce Code.gov to the Baltimore community, encourage people to use and interact with Code.gov, and open the conversation for how we can use Code.gov and other open source software for Baltimore City and Maryland State governments,” said Shimano, who is currently a Baltimore Corps fellow with the city’s Department of General Services and runs the Food Computer Program at Green Street Academy.

The event will also have local representation from Baltimore City IT and the Department of Transportation. Shimano saw Code.gov cofounder Alvand Salehi speak at SXSWedu, and connected afterward with the wider team about giving a similar presentation in Baltimore that could link folks interested in civic tech. After Shimano talked about the effort at DevOpsDays Baltimore in March, Fearless and Spark Baltimore soon joined on as partners. RSVP for the free event below:
