What is Code for Newark?
We play with data and deploy civic apps.
Code for Newark is a civic organization of local developers, designers and data geeks who volunteer to help Newark's public agencies and social enterprises adopt open web technologies. We're a citizen-driven platform for government innovation, and we use open data, design and creative technology as a mode for civic engagement.
We pull together Newarks's best resources to amplify our collective civic impact.
A Code for America Brigade
Code for Newark is only one among dozens of local volunteer groups that are part of the larger Code for America ecosystem.
Catalyzing the Open Data Economy
