Start Here

First time on our website? We have a longer section on who we are, but to keep it short we are the Greensboro chapter of Code for America, a (soon to be) 501c3 nonprofit, and a local community of tech-minded individuals looking for ways to use open data and our members' collective skillset to make Greensboro a better place to live.

We work with local government as well as community organizations to find new and useful ways to connect city and citizen through technology.

Ready to get involved? Here are the ways to get connected with us online.

Meetup

Code for Greensboro's Meetup page Meetup is where we provide information for upcoming events, details on things happening at meetings, and a place to answer any questions or comments related to the event itself. Need directions? Want to know where to park? This is the place to ask.

Currently, we meet the third Wednesday of every month at HQ Greensboro. A typical hacknight can include member or guest presentations, a time for networking, group or individual work on brigade and personal projects, as well as pizza and soda for attendees. Any special events we're hosting, such as Civicon, will also be listed on the meetup site.

If you'd like to attend an upcoming event, click here to RSVP and let us know you're coming!

Slack

Slack is the main tool we use for communication in between meetings. It's a group chat software that can be accessed in your web browser, on your desktop computer, or through apps on most tablets and smartphones.

We use this as a place to have longer-form discussions about the brigade, keep in touch with members, allow teams working on a project to have focused discussion, upload and host files, as well as just put stuff of interest to the community such as job openings and news stories.

To get an invite to our slack team read our guide, or if you already have an account login here.

Social Media

Follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook! On both sites you'll find the latest updates on the group, stories and interesting posts about events in civic tech, as well as news about our community partners and other tech happenings in Greensboro.

Github

Github is the site where our projects are hosted, including our main website. Our project repository or "repo" for short, is where anyone can go to download the source code of a project, contribute their own changes to it, or note issues they would like to see addressed.

If you're ready to dive in, drop us a line at hello@codeforgreensboro.org, and we'll add you to the organization!

Blog

Our blog is a growing section of the site aimed at providing educational content and an in-depth look at the development process of brigade projects. From time-to-time it is also used for the leader team to address new initiatives or challenges Code for Greensboro takes on as an organization.

Periscope

Periscope is where we host video and livestream some of our events. If you can't make it out to one of our hackathons or presentations, this is a good way to stay involved.

We're still in the process of creating our newsletter, but if you'd like to get in early feel free to enter your email below. We'll send you an occasional digest of all the best from our blog, social media, as well as info on upcoming events and projects our members are working on. Sign up now!
