By Francis Li on September 4, 2019
The <dev/Mission> Fellowship is a 6-month program to further develop both technical and career communication skills while working on a project with the potential to serve their city and community. Fellows will learn how to identify community needs and facilitate a research process to design a technological solution for those needs in collaboration with the Code for San Francisco volunteer brigade. In addition, the fellows will learn full stack web development and be mentored in building a web application prototype with Uber volunteer engineers.
- Fellowship applicants must be alumni of the <dev/Mission> bootcamp.
- Fellows will be introduced to the Code for San Francisco brigade at the National Day of Civic Hacking event on September 21, 2019
- Fellows will be required to attend two meetings a week for 24 weeks following the event:
- Fellows should expect to spend 2 hours or more outside of the meetings on development exercises or project research activities.

- Wednesdays, 6-9pm at Code for San Francisco Weekly Civic Hack Night
- Fellows will give a public presentation of their projects at the end of the program.
- Fellows will release the source code for their projects under an open-source license in a public repository.
