Hello! My name’s Patrick Connolly, but the internet usually lets me go by “patcon”.

I’m a software developer and civic hacker. For me, that means that I’m interested in the material and the meta of civic life. Which is to say both the tangible day-to-day, and the more abstract systems which underpin that.

I spend my time trying to help government and civic systems work more like the open-source communities I know and love.

My primary affiliation (ie. the one I’m most proud of), is being an animator within the Civic Tech Toronto community.
