Get Involved

Work on things that matter!

We're a civic-minded team of technologists, designers, and ordinary residents that work with our local government and community to transform our city through technology, design, and open data. We frequently hold public meetings to collaborate on projects, hold community discussions and design sessions, and welcome new volunteers.
