Code for America

Followup to our Kickoff

Thanks to everyone who came out to the last meetup! I think that we got off to a great start, and I'm excited for the next one. 

Last meetup, we met with some of the representatives of the Secretary of State's office (sadly, Nellie Gorbea was unable to attend), and we discussed picking one of the four projects that their office thought would be a) easy to accomplish, and b) of significant value. 


We weren't able to pick one of those projects last time, but we're hoping to get to it this time.  In addition, I think we should all bring our own goals for this group to the meeting and spend some time talking about what we want this organization to become. 

Hope to see you all there on the 30th, and I hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving!

Meet the Secretary of State at the State House Library!

Hi all!

Meetup recently sent me an email asking if I wanted to take over as the organizer of this group, and I figured I'd say yes. This was a group that I really wanted to take part in back when it was founded in 2014, but I wasn't really able to devote the time to it back then. It seems like there were some innovative projects that were started by the group, but that it lost steam somewhere along the way and has fallen by the wayside.

So, I'm hoping that we can give this another go. 

I arranged a meeting with the Secretary of State the other day and explained the purpose of the group and how I think our group can work together with the Secretary of State's office to help solve problems here in the Ocean State. Secretary Gorbea is excited about the possibilities for this group, and she'll be in attendance as we kickoff the next chapter of Code for America here in Rhode Island. 


I'm hoping that we can have the state identify some high value projects that they'd love to get to, but won't ever be able to because they don't have the resources to accomplish them. We can talk more about this at the meetup, and decide on next steps for the organization. 

Oh, and beer and snacks will be served! So, free beer, a chance to hang out in the amazing State House Library, and you get to talk about code and civic hacking. What more do you want? 

Hope to see you all soon!

August Brigade Meetup!

Hello Do-Gooders,

Code Island is back in action, and we're getting together next week!

I hope everyone got to spend some of this beautiful summer on the Island...Code, Rhode, Block or whatever. Beach life is a big part of why people live in RI, so it's only right that we took a break and got some sun. 

Now, let's get back to work. 

We're going to jumpstart the civic do-goodery next Tuesday, August 19th at Brown University's Tri-Lab, starting at 6pm. We'll jump right back into our ongoing projects, sharing updates on the two wiki projects, the budget visualizations and all the other efforts brigade members are working on. As a bonus, I'll give my spell-binding presentation, "All About GitHub."

What--other than a sunny day at Misquamicut--could be better?

Hope to see you next Tuesday,
Ryan
