Join Us for the 2015 Code for America Summit!

How can we transform government?

That’s the main question behind Code for America’s mission. Across the country, government workers are banding together to use technology to better their civic practices and keep our communities strong.

That’s why we’re excited to join Code for America (CfA) for their annual summit in Oakland. The 2015 CfA Summit brings together some of the nation’s top leaders in government, civic technology, community organizing, design and more in a chance to share ideas, inspire others, and work together to make great things. And we’re lucky to have one of our own names, Adam Hecktman, leading a panel on data visualization.

We want you to join us in the spirit of CfA summit — as Annmarie Levins mentioned in her call for action to make the most of Open Government Data, we want to collaborate on new ideas with as many people as possible. Let’s use our skills and passion to empower communities.

Local speakers include:

  • Joseph Curtatone, Mayor, City of Somerville
  • Daniel Hadley, Chief of Staff, City of Somerville
  • Denise Taylor, Director of Communications, City of Somerville
  • Skye Stewart, Director of Innovation and Analytics, City of Somerville
  • Jascha Franklin-Hodge, Chief Information Officer, City of Boston
  • Alex Soble, 2015 Somerville Fellow, Code for America
  • Uri Harel, Elementary Curriculum Coordinator, Somerville Public Schools
  • Samantha Hammar, Director of Strategic Partnerships, Massachusetts Office of Information Technology
  • Curt Savoie, Principal Data Scientist, Boston
  • Holly St. Clair, Director of Data Services, Boston’s Metropolitan Area Planning Council
  • Harlan Weber, Captain, Code for Boston
