What is Code Across?
CodeAcross is Code for America’s multi-city civic hacking event that takes place in 50+ locations across the world. Developers, designers, researchers, public servants, policy makers and other concerned citizens work together to improve their communities using the people and power of the web. In the past we’ve built apps, explored datasets, and inspired tech savvy citizens and civic innovators to transform government services. Join us and sign up for your local event today!

Beyond Transparency
This year’s CodeAcross theme is Beyond Transparency and is inspired by a book released under the same name. Beyond Transparency urges us to think beyond making data open and focus on making it actionable. When local governments, civic technologists, and the community use open data effectively, the outcome is better decision-making, efficient service delivery, and an environment where citizens contribute to the health of their communities.
