Digital technology is changing the way we live our lives in areas such as banking, entertainment, education and tourism. This technology also has the capacity to transform civic society – including democratic participation, citizen journalism and supporting local communities. National and Local Governments around the world are opening up the data that they hold for reuse by others. The reuse of Open Government Data facilitates transparency, participation, collaboration and economic development.

The aim of Code for Ireland is to bring together people from local communities, software developers and people working in government in order to develop apps and services that solve community problems and also to enable open government. The first Code for Ireland chapter has been established in Dublin and in the coming years additional chapters will be established in other Irish cities and towns.
