Our Priorities. The things we care about.

  • We want to assist in making sure San Diegans’ “citizen experience” is among the best in the nation
  • It is important to us that San Diego lead the nation in efficient procurement of civic software solutions.
  • We believe that San Diegans should be able to work together create a more engaged and efficient democracy.
  • We want to help maximize the Internet’s potential to spur economic development.
Check out our Priorities Document to read a full articulation of these ideas. [protip: you can edit or comment on any of our docs including this website]

We Meet Often. Come Join Us.

View our Meetups site for our next location and time. We try to meet every few weeks to discuss and work on our projects, or brainstorm on current issues and activities around San Diego.

Want To Help Your Neighborhood, City or Region? Good, we could use your help.

We are a Code for America Brigade, which means we’re volunteers that contribute our talents toward improving the way our local governments and community organizations use the web. Brigade is about action and you’re here because you are someone who takes action. See what kind of things brigades do, or watch the inspirational TED talk given by Jennifer Pahlka, the founder of Code for America.

We Discuss Things Online. Join and Introduce Yourself.

Can’t make it to a meetup? No problem. We collaborate on projects, ask for help, and post wins to our Open San Diego Google Group where you can get new posts in email and reply. We welcome anyone to sign-up… you might just see something you’re interested in helping with.

Want Even More Info? Contact Us.

Our Brigade Captain is Jeffrey Johnson ( or @ortelius) and our brigade team list is on twitter. We want to hear from you!
