We've launched our new brigade member site!

Notice anything new on this site?

Yeah, it's been redesigned. But there's more to it than that. Our very own Perry Taylor has been hard at work with developers from Code for San Francisco to build a NodeJS-powered CMS called BrigadeHub that's tailored specifically to the needs of Code for America brigades.

From here on out, all civic-tech projects we work on will be published to GitHub, which syncs back to this site. All events from Meetup.com, too, sync to the calendar here automagically. When an event is happening, you can 'check-in' on your phone so that CfA will have a solid way to count of our attendance numbers to gauge the amount of funding we receive.

Perhaps best of all, we want to invite anyone who has attended at least one brigade event to contribute to the blog if they'd like. All you have to do is a one-click single-sign-on with GitHub by selecting Login at the top right of the screen. If you don't have a GitHub account, this is the time to make one (even if you know nothing about code, just trust me). Once you're logged in to opensavannah.org, you can select Settings from the dropdown menu to upload an avatar and your role if applicable. Then voila! You should appear on the Contact page.
