Open Raleigh Brigade

The Open Raleigh Brigade believes government can work for the people, by the people in the 21st century. We are a volunteer organization advocating for open government, open data, and open innovation. We believe civic tech is a great way to impact our community.

Open Raleigh Brigade is building an awesome civic tech community by hosting meet-ups and NC Open Pass events. (Note, we share a meet-up group with Code for Cary and Code for Durham.)

Our primary focus is planning NC Open Pass—an event series focused on improving our communities using open innovation and open data with neighbors and government partners. Our premier events are Civic Camp, held in September, and DataPalooza, our open data competition and hackathon that starts in September and concludes in early November.

Open Raleigh Brigade is proud to partner and collaborate with the City of Raleigh and Wake County.

If you’d like to get involved, join our meet-up group, Code for Triangle or connect with brigade captains Jason Hibbets and Chris Mathew.
