What will happen at the event?

This will be a day of talking, brainstorming, planning. Optimally, we hope to:

Discuss some of the local government data sets competition entrants might work with

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.

Prototype ideas We hope there will be plenty of space for developers to hack on things — from refining core bits and pieces of technology to rapid prototyping of new ideas
Can I propose a session?

Yes, especially if you are the owner of, or have access to, public data sets with Oakland/East Bay relevant information. Propose your session as part of the data camp- post–send ideas to codeforoakland@oaklandlocal.com; we will post them.
What kinds of topics will be covered?

Sessions will include things like:

What are datasets that can serve low-income people and local communities of
color?
Finding open government data: catalogues, registries and metadata
Working with data: Technical aspects of opening up government data
Working with mobile: Mobile highlights to know
Developer speed-dating: Find others to work with on your project
