With 2020 just around the corner, we’re starting to get excited about our first-ever Code for America Summit on the East Coast! We had a record number of submissions for breakout sessions and lightning talks this year, with nearly 550 proposals from people representing more than 200 organizations.
The Summit 2020 content committee has been combing through submissions for the past several months to curate a Summit experience full of learning opportunities and inspiration to break through some of government’s biggest challenges, and we’re nearly ready to share the full lineup of Summit content. In the meantime, we’re sharing a sneak peek at some of the sessions we’re especially excited about across our four content tracks.
