Code for Seattle

Developers, designers, data geeks, leaders, artists, and idea-makers who help Seattle government and civic organizations adopt open web technologies.

Our next event:

Hack for Change Seattle

Want to help Seattle, WA? Good — we could use your help!

We are a Code for America Brigade, which means we're a group of Seattleites that contribute our talents towards improving the way our local governments and community organizations use the web.
