A casual weekly meetup where we work on projects and hack open data.
We are a Code for America Brigade, which means we're volunteers that contribute our talents toward improving the way our local governments and community organizations use the web. Brigade is about action and you're here because you are someone who takes action. See what kind of things brigades do, or watch the inspirational TED talk given by Jennifer Pahlka, the founder of Code for America.
View our Meetups site for our next location and time. We meet every Wednesday where we hack (develop) our projects, or brainstorm on current issues and activities around Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and the rest. It's actually a lot of fun, with great people and usually food/drink.
Can't make it to a meetup? No problem. We collaborate on projects, ask for help, and post wins to our Code for Hampton Roads forum where you can get new posts in email and reply. We welcome anyone to sign-up... you might just see something you're interested in helping with. We're also in IRC chat on freenode.net channel #codeforva.
