Brigades in the Code for America Network are working on many similar projects in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. To best coordinate projects across Brigades, share successes and lessons, and to measure impact — we first need to have a workable list of projects.
Introducing: The Brigade Project Index
This index, created by volunteers from several different Brigades, is a new way to document and share Brigade projects. You can view the GitHub repo here, and see the live project index here. This index relies on proper succinct GitHub documentation in order to adequately pull project names and descriptions into the index.
Documentation is essential. To best support our Brigade projects and to help properly identify and coordinate on COVID-19 projects, the Brigade COVID-19 organizing group proposed a Spring Cleaning for Your Repos from April 3-5, 2020 where we’ll focus on: updating project documentation, ditching dead Slack channels, tagging things for the project index, and indexing Brigade projects.
