Thank you!

You helped us build the path forward together at our first-ever hybrid Code for America Summit.

We hope you enjoyed your 2022 Summit experience, whether it was virtual or in-person.

Mainstage programming and virtual breakout session recordings will be available on our YouTube channel in the coming weeks. See you in 2023!

Code for America’s annual Summit brings together changemakers from across the country to convene, collaborate, and learn as they break through some of government’s biggest challenges by removing barriers and finding real solutions that can make our systems work well for everyone.

Code for America Summit 2022 will be a two-day hybrid experience, with both in-person events in the Washington, D.C. area and virtual sessions featuring keynotes, breakout sessions, and more.

During last year’s all-virtual Summit, we heard both that people appreciated the increased accessibility of a virtual event, and that they missed in-person connections from Summits past. For those reasons, and the continuing uncertainty of the pandemic, a hybrid event seemed the best choice for our broader community.

The theme for our upcoming Summit is building the path forward together. Over the past year, we’ve seen proof points of how government systems can be reimagined and redesigned to serve people more effectively and equitably. Now is the time to set systems in place not just for our current moment, but for decades to come.

This year’s conference tracks will be:

  • Service Design + Delivery
  • Policy + Administration
  • Operations + Management
  • People Power + Community

Summit brings together a community that shares successes and failures, learns from one another, and is ready to do what it takes to improve government in meaningful ways.

We believe deeply in equitable representation, and strive to highlight voices that have been underrepresented in technology and in government. Our hybrid approach allows diverse voices from all corners of the country to be part of the conversation.

Code for America is actively monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and Summit is subject to change to an all-virtual event at any time.

About Code for America

Code for America, a civic tech nonprofit founded in 2009, believes that government can work for the people, and by the people, in the digital age. We work with government at all  levels across the country to make the delivery of public services more equitable with technology. Together with thousands of volunteers across over 80 Brigade chapters in the U.S., we work with community organizations and governments to build digital tools and services, change policies, and improve programs. Our goal: a resilient government that effectively and equitably serves everyone. Learn more at codeforamerica.org.
