Code for Tucson is a 24-hour long code competition hosted by Gangplank Tucson and inspired by the work of Code for America, Open Tucson, Startup Tucson and other passionate people and groups who seek to make a positive impact in their local community. The event is an opportunity for developers and designers to get involved in their community by utilizing public data and their own inspiration to develop apps that can increase government transparency and help the city better serve their constituents.
Events like Code for Tucson are also about meeting and getting to know local tech community while doing something fun! The Interweb is amazing, but hanging with a group of like-minded people in person is way better than any social network hangout.
We’ll provide the space, the data, the coffee and the food. You provide the awesome!

With civic minded events like Code for Tucson, we bring together a really good group of people giving of their time and skills to make their community a better place. For this reason, we are committed to making Code for Tucson a free event for all regular attendees. However, we still need to provide food, drinks, snacks, swag and prizes just like any of our regular events. For that reason, we are seeking sponsors at various levels. If you have the interest or ability, please consider becoming a Code for Tucson sponsor.
Thanks to our sponsors!
