Chris Alfano


Chris, Chief Technology Officer of Jarvus Innovations, has more than 15 years of experience with system architecture, app development, and systems administration. Over the past seven years, he has built more than 30 projects using Sencha’s Ext JS and Touch frameworks, for clients such as Time Warner Cable.

I’m a software developer forged by Free and open-source software (FOSS) and a founding captain of one of the longest-running Code For America brigades. My civic hacking journey began while working in a Philly public school and for nearly a decade now I’ve gotten to build open-source software with some of the most innovative public schools in the world.

In 2012 he organized and founded Code for Philly, a local volunteer chapter of the national nonprofit Code for America, and still serves as co-captain.
