Code for DC and other Code for America–affiliated groups are gathering in Philadelphia next month. The nonprofit’s first-ever Brigade Congress will feature CfA brigade volunteers from around the world, joined by civil servants, civic technologists and other leaders.
The idea is to share your stories about what has worked, what hasn’t and how we can apply those lessons to future wins.
Tickets are $100, though there is also a pay-what-you-can model for active brigade members. Technical.ly is taking part as an organizing partner. The weekend will follow the unconference format, where participants shape which sessions take place.

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.
For now, grab those tickets, and we’ll see you in Philly!
