About 'Code for Eau Claire!'

We are a Code for America Brigade in Eau Claire, Wisconsin — volunteers interested in open data, open knowledge, civic apps, big data, data visualization, APIs and the application of technology to make our communities better.

We encourage civic engagement and collaboration with our local government. We are engaged citizens with backgrounds and interest in technology, design, business management, policy and good government.

Attend our upcoming Hack Night. The Hack Night is for those who want to:

  • learn about open data, smart cities, and open government
  • bounce ideas and get help from tech and gov experts
  • get work done on civic projects
  • start a new project, or find one to work on (all backgrounds welcome!)

For more, watch the inspirational TED talk given by Jennifer Pahlka, the founder of Code for America. Learn more about Brigades in the video below.
