Driving Change Through Open Data

Code for Nebraska is a volunteer group of civic-minded professionals with a passion for learning and experimentation and dedication to innovation and exploration. Our mission is to use open data to create apps that improve the transparency of our government here in Nebraska and serve the public good. We are proudly made up of developers, designers, engineers, architects, researchers and tech-savvy citizens committed to driving change and improving our community. We champion diversity, equity and inclusion and advocate for positive social change.
