  • 1. CODE ACROSS February 22 & 23, 2014 Code Across is a once-a-year weekend of hackathons, meetups, and community events, building a patriotic spirit of collaboration. It’s an annual Code for America initiative each February with our city partners, civic developers and Brigade community organizers across the country (and, starting this year, across the world!) that creates an impressive number of Github repos, beta apps, liberated datasets, media, and other achievements. This year will be our third and biggest ever Code Across - we are planning for over 30 public gatherings with more than 1000 participants that weekend in cities including San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Denver, San Antonio, Austin, Las Vegas, Miami, Seattle, Washington DC, Houston and Atlanta. And since we opened to international partners this year, the event will cross borders and happen around the globe including in countries like Ireland, Japan, and Poland. WHO Talented, socially-minded developers, designers, and mappers; local government officials; city and county employees and tech decision-makers; public and urban planners; community organizers who are driving civic tech innovation in their cities; innovative startups and entrepreneurs; and community members from all walks of life. WHAT An international initiative and local public events on Saturday 2/22 and Sunday 2/23. Code for America coordinates the national event, creating media and content to bring the community together, running a national online hangout during the weekend, distributing organizer’s kits, and sharing the success stories afterward. Check out this Storify for pictures and more details. WHERE Over 30 cities around the globe, including cities where we have local Brigade Captains, our 2014 Fellowship cities, our international partners, and more. Code for America promotes the event widely to our network via email, website, and social media. In 2013 Code Across America was covered by the Huffington Post, Silicon Prairie News, key civic tech blogs as well as many local outlets who covered the individual events. See the page for Code Across America 2013 here.
  • 2. Become A Sponsoring Partner  |  $15,000 We've seen how event partnerships can be a powerful entry point to connect with the CfA community. Other sponsors who’ve connected with our community partners, Fellows, Brigade members and civic tech startup founders have forged deep collaborations from the face-to-face conversations at our events. What’s more, you’ll not only be positively shaping our communities, but you’ll be aligning with some of the most influential leaders in the government and technology space. As a non-profit, we need sponsors like you to make Code Across possible. With your help, we can bring together hundreds of developers, designers, city officials and community members for events across the country. As a company interested in improving government, we want you here at the table. This is an opportunity available to a limited number of select sponsors. Your support goes directly to help fund the national Code for America Brigade program.
