(Rockford, IL) The EIGERlab’s IT (information technology) Roundtable is proud to announce that we are officially launching a Code for America Brigade in Rockford. The Brigade program helps local volunteer groups partner with government in an effort to enhance their communities. Brigades hold regular hack nights, events, advocate for open data, and deploy apps. Currently, in 31 cities and four countries, Brigade volunteers and local government officials are creating new avenues for civic engagement and working to create an open and participatory city hall.
