Event Details

Are you a local non-profit, local or faith-based organization that provides services to people in Oakland and the surrounding area? Do you have an idea for getting information to the community you serve using a smart, feature, some such similar device ? Interested in competing at a national level for prize money totaling $100,000 ? 
Welcome to Code for Oakland's Pre-Session

There will be two Q&A sessions (specifics below), These sessions will answer, or at least work to answer questions around how to structure your idea or proposal so that others can assist you in possibly developing a mobile or web application (computer program) which can then be used in your local service community. Questions you might ask are "Where can I get the information I am interested in sharing with my organization/community ?",  "Do I have to know how to write a computer program ?", "Who are these people that will help me take my idea and turn it into an application ?", 
During these sessions, the hosts will do their best to answer these questions and more. If they don't have the answers themselves, then they will try and find someone who can and try to get the answers to you at least by  the time the Code For Oakland event starts, if not before. Be creative, no question is too trivial. 
Hopefully by sessions end you'll have a better idea of what your idea is and it might be possible to turn into an app. At the very least there's a good chance you sit around and brainstorm with some interesting people
Saturday, June 4, you will present your idea and  have a chance to gather a group to help build it.  For more information on the community programs email
