When civic tech delivers, it can make a difference in the lives of people who need it the most. While many flock to it for experience building and/or altruistic reasons, those who have been through the trenches know that civic tech in the after work hours has its challenges. In this talk, learn more about how Chicago’s Code for America Brigade, Code for Chicago, attempt to resolve common pain points through the lens of their projects.
