A view of the Code for America Brigade Congress in October 2017 in Philadelphia.

I helped organize Code for America’s inaugural national Brigade Congress

Long a believer in the importance of the nascent civic technology community, I’ve been a fan of national nonprofit Code for America. So I was thrilled for the chance to support the group in producing its first ever Brigade Congress, a national unconference focused on civic tech, last month.

We at Technical.ly led logistics and support. For the event’s close, I led a 200-person town hall to gather feedback and share lessons from the two-day event.
