Puerto Rico to Host the Code for America Program

By Wil Payton

Puerto Rico has been chosen to host Code for America, a program that brings web professionals together with political leaders to promote openness, participation, and efficiency in local governments.

Puerto Rico’s selection to host the non-profit program is a direct result of the Tech Summit Puerto Rico held in June, which featured Code for America representatives as speakers.

Below is an excerpt from a News is My Business article of this development:

“In the case of Puerto Rico, the group selected to come to work on solutions for our government will be arriving to the island sometime in February,” said Giancarlo González, the Puerto Rico government’s chief information officer.

“In an interagency effort, the Science and Technology Trust will serve as the headquarters for this group of developers working on the solution to be developed during their months on the island,” said González.
