Code for Philly is an organization that is trying to raise civic engagement through code. To a lot of people, that may not make sense. The organization works through confronting problems facing a community, and then uses available data-sets and code to build projects that can help address those issues.
Code for Philly is packed with members that offer a variety of resources and skill-sets, who are impassioned to create change though civic hacking. The organization is hoping to strengthen their relationship with communities and organizations across the city and address problems through technology.
