Friendly Code is the Grand Rapids chapter of the Code for America Brigade. Founded in 2013, we are a local group of developers, designers, data geeks, GIS experts, and interested citizens who are to help Grand Rapids' government and civic organizations adopt open web technologies. Our goal is to enable the Grand Rapids community to consume public data to empower them to become more involved with the city. 

Code for America is a non-partisan, non-political 501(c)3 organization founded in 2009 to bring web-industry professionals to work with city governments in the United States in order to promote openness, participation, and efficiency in municipal governments.

Code for America!
