About

"Open Miami?" Like, the tennis tournament?

No. You're thinking the Miami Open.

Open Miami, on the other hand, wants to champion the use of open-source tech in building municipal services and programs that make Miami a better place. 

We started seven years ago as Code for Miami, volunteers that met over pizzas every week to use technology to make Miami a better place to live. We continue that mission to this day through a network of community organizing, educational events related to technology, civics, and issues, and promote and facilitate tech projects based on available technologies and open data.

Current Projects and Programs

  • Code for Miami Events and Workshops: Every year we do bi-weekly Open Hack Nights and major events in partnership with Code for America.  
  • The Miami Civic User Testing Group (cutgroup.miami) - a ten month pilot program to bring a county wide user testing group to test city and county apps and websites. A 2016 Knight Cities Challenge winner.
  • GetHousing (GetHousing.org) - a 6-month research project funded by Code for America to modernize the City of Miami's Affordable Housing Certificate program. This project ended on December 2019.
