Code for America ‘Labs Day’ Fridays tackle small government tech projects to help make a big difference

Code for America Just received the latest Code for America newsletter and wanted to share info about its ‘Lab Day’ program that happens every Friday in its San Francisco offices.

Here’s the gist:

We open the doors, and work on projects that you and our fellows care about. We’re focused on cool, light-weight gov-related projects, things that could make a difference from just a few hours of work. Coders, designers, and researchers — from inside government and out — are welcome.

Register:

In the future, CfA fellows will host labs days in their respective project cities. Contact labs@codeforamerica.org for more information or to set up one in your area.
