Say hi to everyone in this thread!
Hi! I’m Tom, the Developer Evangelist on the Network Team.
I got involved with Code for America about five years ago when I first attended OpenOakland. At the time, I didn’t know anything about the Brigade network – even though I lived in San Francisco I commuted to OpenOakland and kept working on opendisclosure.io for years.
Eventually, I applied to be a CfA fellow last year and worked with Multnomah County (Portland, OR) to develop casecompanion.org. You might have seen it on the Summit main stage this year if you didn’t blink (it was featured for about 30 seconds.)
And now I’m here. My role at CfA is to help brigades get connected with the technical support they need to create successful projects.
