Projects

The list of projects we’re working on is always changing! Here are a few of our past and current projects:


Code for DC Data Portal

Code for DC’s data portal is a public data catalog for and by the people of Washington, DC. It complements the catalog maintained by the city government at opendata.dc.gov, which houses official municipal data. Explore, upload, download and analyze!

ANC Finder

A project to explain DC’s hyperlocal Advisory Neighborhood Commission system by pulling information scattered across the web into one place.

Open Election Map

In collaboration with our local NPR affiliate, WAMU, we built a map to display the results of Washington DC’s 2014 General Election. The map includes results for Mayor, Attorney General, and Initiative 71.

About

Code for DC is a Code for America Brigade located here in Washington, DC. Founded in 2012, we are a non-partisan, non-political group of volunteer civic hackers working together to solve local issues and help people engage with the city. We host twice-monthly hacknights and other events to gather, discuss, and get stuff done.

We're looking to bring people with all different skill sets together to maximize our potential. Civic hackers aren't just developers — they're journalists, lawyers, designers, and interested citizens in general. The more community participation, the better.

This website is new and we are currently adding additional content to it. You can find our old website here.
