Project demo night!

Want to see how volunteers are using technology to tackle hard challenges in San Francisco? Code for SF is hosting a demo night of the projects our members are building. 

These volunteers are working to increase voter knowledge, reduce flooding in SF, understand the relationship between demographic and contextual factors contribute to juvenile arrests, and much more. There will be quick presentations (with questions) followed by a social event. See what Code for SF is doing, meet the people building these solutions, and even join a project!
