Code for Boulder logo

Enabling community members to collaboratively solve local problems with technology.

We are community organizers, subject-matter experts, designers, technologists, UX/UI experts, interested residents, and more who are working for a better Boulder, a better America and a better tomorrow.

As the Boulder brigade of Code for America, we are a non-partisan, non-political organization working to create low-risk settings for innovation between citizens and government.

Thank you for sponsoring our National Day of Civic Hacking | Code for Boulder Hackathon 2017
