San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Build. Learn. Demo. Deploy.
Curious about what the fellows & cities been up to in 2012? Come find out, and learn how their city projects could work in yours.
Over the past six months, our 26 fellows have been hard at work building apps for their cities: Austin, Texas; Chicago; Detroit; Honolulu; Macon, Ga.; New Orleans; Philadelphia; and Santa Cruz, Calif. With just a few months until the 2012 Code for America Summit – the capstone event of the fellowship year – we’re hosting a live webinar to give you a chance to check in with our fellows, find out what they’ve been working on, and learn how these apps might be used in your city for your city's residents. We’ll be screening a sampling of this year’s projects – and the fellows who built these apps will be online to answer your questions.
It’s a unique opportunity to find out:
- What have Code for America fellows been building this year?
- What’s the story behind these apps?
- What apps could you repurpose in your own city?
- What do you need to do to redeploy these apps?
The webinar will be livestreamed at 10:00 a.m. Pacific (1:00 p.m. Eastern), August 23 2012. Access details will be shared with registered attendees before the event. Admission to the webinar is free, but donations of any amount are tax-deductible contributions to Code for America, a 501(c)(3).
About Code for America
Code for America helps governments work better for everyone with the people and the power of the web. Founded in 2009, Code for America held its inaugural fellowship in 2011 with 19 fellows and three cities. Through the Fellowship program Code for America provides an opportunity for the web generation to give back by connecting developers and designers with city governments to innovate. In 2012, Code for America has grown to connecting 26 fellows with eight cities. The Code for America Accelerator, launched April 2012, supports disruptive civic startups, and Brigade helps organize hackers locally to reuse and deploy civic software. Code for America is reimagining government for the 21st century. codeforamerica.org
The Code for America Summit is our annual, invitation-only event for more than 250 leaders and innovators in civic technology to come together in one room for a face-to-face conversation. In addition to showcasing critical achievements from the year, the Summit hosts the conversations that determine the collective vision for this movement going forward. The 2012 Summit will be held in October 1–3, in San Francisco. cfasummit.org
