Help Code for America Build Killer Civic Apps

Our friends over at Code for America, the Teach for America-inspired civic software project we mentioned in the Neighborhoods Issue, are accepting applications for their 2011 fellows program. They write:

If you’re a developer, designer, product manager, data wrangler or researcher who wants to make a difference, this is your opportunity to build a new generation of Gov 2.0 apps to make city governments work better.

CfA fellows get a crash course in how cities work, mentorship and networking with the top names in tech and government, and a platform to launch companies and careers that will bring long-term innovation to the public sector. They also get a living-wage stipend, travel expenses, and healthcare for the year. Most of all, they get the chance to be heroes.


Applications are due by August 15, 2010. You can get all the details here.
