Hacking with Open Oakland

Open Oakland is one of the most vibrant and active Code for America Brigades in the country, and last night we had the pleasure of joining members for their weekly hack night.

Open Oakland is somewhat unique in that it brings civic hacking directly into the heart of city government – holding it’s weekly meetups inside Oakland City Hall. The event last night saw a large turnout of civic hackers all actively engaged on a number of interesting projects.

The City of Oakland is an Accela customer, and we’re currently working with them to help them leverage the Accela Civic Platform and to publish open data that can be used by groups like Open Oakland. We’re also working closely with other governments in the area to publish open data, like the City of Alameda.

To learn more about the group, including how you can join and help out on projects, visit the Open Oakland website.

Happy hacking!
