Monday — March 6, 2017

Projects, Hackathons, and more

Happy Monday everyone! This week, we focus on some of the amazing projects that make this community what it is: a dynamic network of solutions for the grassroots. These amazing projects aim to provide a space for developers and the movement at large to maximize their potential. This is inline with ProgCode’s main goal of removing the influence of money in politics.

CodeCorps.org

CodeCorps help people build simple software that solves hard problems. They match developers and designers, project managers and marketers — any and every talent — to ambitious projects that need their help.

Currently, they have soft launched their fundraising platform for open source projects! Please do check them out and reach out to @joshsmith or @dconnis for more info. They’re in #code-corps

UnionBase.org

UnionBase.org helps workers find a union to represent you and your co-workers. It enables them to get the respect and security you deserve on the job.

This amazing effort is being led by @unioncoder over at #unionbase-builder ! Feel free to reach out to @unioncoder and @shushugah

SocialRoots.io

#socialroots enables you to find like-minded people, organize, and quickly spread a message across your digital networks. You can start your own campaign, or hop into an existing team.
