Over 550 people applied to be Code for America fellow for the 2012 program. Candidates came in from across the country and around the world, and they came with backgrounds ranging from back-end development experience to urban design. From that tremendous applicant pool, we worked with our selection committee of leading technologists, city officials, and thought leaders to identify the top for next year. Below are short biographies for some of those selected who, come January, will be 2012 Code for America Fellows.
