This is our first of the month meetup where we plan, review, check in on projects, consider new ideas and events and connect with other civic hacking, opengov loving peeps.
It's totally cool if you are a first timer to attend this week, as always! If you have attended before and are a member of our community then you have access to our agenda and can propose items to discuss. We'll also have an open item spot for anything you gotta share.
OpenOakland, a Code for America Brigade, is a civic innovation organization that brings together coders, designers, data geeks, journalists, and city staff to collaborate on solutions to improve how our local government serves all citizens of Oakland. We draw on our wide range of expertise and perspectives to build open-source applications and working relationships that promote civic innovation and open government in Oakland.
Our projects range from events like CityCamp and the Open Government Pledge, to a community-based open-data portal and OaklandWiki, to apps that help you chart crime trends, submit FOIA requests, or adopt your local storm drain.
Come join us and help make open government a reality in Oakland!
