Event Details

Update: Our prize pool is now $5,000!!

Come out for the 2nd annual Code for Oakland: Building Our Civic Web; a month-long series of focused discussions and events that culminate in a one-day hackathon at the Henry J Kaiser Center!  Presented by Ask.com and the Code for Oakland Committee, come out and join Oakland's community of civically engaged developers, coders, designers, entrepreneurs and innovators as we re-imagine ways in which collaboration and technology can help shape, grow, and sustain the healthy future of our City.
 
The focus of this year’s hackathon is on: building apps, hacking public data and building tools to support economic development in Oakland, improve civic engagement, improve digital education and literacy in our residents and provide tools to attract and sustain local business in the town.
 
Do you have ideas about how technology could help address these issues, but don’t consider yourself a techie? Come to one of these upcoming listening sessions to share your ideas, brainstorm community needs and help shape what is built at the hackathon. We want to hear from small business owners, community activists, teachers, city staff, nonprofit leaders and people from across the city- your ideas may just spark a great new app or tool to make positive change in our city!

Please note the new registration and breakfast time of 8:30!

Come win $5,000 in prize money for your ideas!

Over $5,000 in prizes will be awarded, including two $1,000 awards for the top teams, one of which comes with a special support package from Socrata.


What will happen at the event?

This will be a day of talking, brainstorming, planning and hacking. We will:

Show and share the great apps built last year, and to discuss how we can sustain and scale their use in our city

Build connections between potential collaborators who want to build useful apps for local people and need to fill out their team/skills

Encourage the exchange of experiences, expertise and ideas between those involved in leading open government data initiatives around the East Bay and nearby.

Build & Hack new apps, tools and solutions driven by real needs and problems in our city

Celebrate we'll end the event with a happy hour at a nearby watering hole to network, share and relax.

Engage On Sunday we will have some team events to get even more involved- stay tuned as we develop some ultra geeky but ultra fun events for everyone! Hint- Max Ogden and Matt Senate are conspiring...

Sustain We will be providing a light breakfast, plenty of caffiene and a great lunch and plenty of snacks.
