The community of developers that makes up Code for Tulsa has been building civic apps since 2011. We’re programmers, graphic designers, PR/Marketing professionals, and all of us have a huge heart for making Tulsa a better place to live, work, and play. We’ve worked with Tulsa Transit, the Tulsa Fire Department, the Tulsa Library, the local food bank, the regional planning authority, and FEMA.
We became an official Code for America Brigade in late 2012, and hosted a local National Day of Civic Hacking + Hack for Change event in June of 2013, leading to the Open Search Map project with FEMA and to Scott Phillips being recognized as a White House Champion of Change. Since then we’ve helped the City of Tulsa create an open data policy, and we’ve been working with community organizations to realize the potential of open data, and data-driven decision-making at the level of local government.
