Anne Rynearson: Why I’m Coding for America

best place to buy kamagra online. #Kamagra USA. kamagra jelly.

My favorite childhood story wasAi??Miss Rumphius. Miss Rumphius sets out to do three things in her life: travel the world, live by the ocean, and make the world a more beautiful place. Like Miss Rumphius in the story, I’ve found that the goal of making the world a more beautiful place can be a challenge.

My background is in education reform. I’ve spent time in the classroom, in a teachers’ union, and in the Department of Education. And at buy vardenafil 20mg. #buy Levitra online. buy levitra online paypal. every level, I’ve seen the same phenomenon: people facing scleroticAi??bureaucracyAi??that saps them of their energy and keeps their creative ideas from doing good. Enter Code for America.

To me, Code for America isn’t really about coding. Though apps likeAi??Where’s My School BusAi??andAi??Solar WidgetAi??are cool, such technology is merely a means to an end (full disclosure: this is a thought I’ve heard from many during my first week at Code for America). The true power of Code for America comes from its ability to influence the culture of governments. Or, more specifically, to influence the way that people in government think.

Code for America fellows embrace the tech-world mentality: feedback loops, iteration, and – most of all – an endless faith in doxycycline over the counter cvs. #Buy Doxycycline. buy doxycycline for dogs online. the possible. Bringing such energy to the crowded corridors and cramped offices of city hall exposes local government to a new way of doing things. And whenAi??bureaucrats begin to embrace the “why not?” mentality of the technology world, real and lasting improvements in government can begin.

Like Miss Rumphius, I want to make the world a more fluconazole 150mg tablets over the counter. #Buy Diflucan USA. diflucan over the counter walgreens. beautiful place. I’m coding for America because I believe the organization will help create a culture of efficiency, openness, and collaboration in city government. That would be a more beautiful world indeed.
