Join us for the second annual CityCampOak! Never heard of CityCamp? Check the reviews of least year!
Once again we will be bringing together people like yourself to share ideas to enhance government transparency, citizen participation, and accountability, which will support more informed, healthy, livable communities.
This event will be hosted inside City Hall and is brought to you by OpenOakland with the awesome venue provided by the City of Oakland.
Our goals for CityCampOak are to:
- Bring together local government officials, municipal employees, experts, programmers, designers, citizens, and journalists to share perspectives and insights about the city of Oakland;
- Create and maintain patterns for using the Web to facilitate local government transparency and effective local governance;
- Foster communities of practice and advocacy on the role of the Web, mobile communication, online information, and open data in cities; and
- Create outcomes that participants will act upon after the event is over.
We'll have two great local leaders speaking about government & technology: Michal Migurski, the CTO of Code for America and the creator of CrimeSpotting, along with Tim Vollmer, the Policy and Data Manager of Creative Commons.
