Standard for Public Code

version 0.1.1

Request for contributions

We believe public policy and software should be inclusive, usable, open, legible, accountable, accessible and sustainable. This means we need a new way of designing, developing and procuring both the source code and policy documentation.

This standard sets a quality level for codebases that meets the needs of public organizations, institutions and administrations as well as other critical infrastructural services.

The standard lives at standard.publiccode.net, and for an overview of all content see index.md.

We are looking for people like you to contribute to this project by suggesting improvements and helping develop it. 😊 Get started by reading our contributors guide.
