Get Started

New to OpenSMC?

First time at a civic tech hack night? Here’s some ways to get started.

  • Check out our current projects. Introduce yourself to the team and ask how you can help.
  • Start a discussion about a new project idea. It’s good to talk about it first to see if anything similar has been built already.
  • Help us research the quality of San Mateo Conuty’s Open Data on the national open data census.
  • Help us give some User Experience advice for important online city services for San Mateo County at http://citizenonboard.com/. We have connections to the County departments that can use your advice to improve these services.
  • Code for San Mateo County anytime by helping us with our open GitHub Issues:
