CityCamp Oakland is a full day of talks, workshops, where open government, “Gov 2.0,” meets community activism.

The event brings together government, business, neighborhood, non-profit, and academic communities to work toward next generation solutions for Oakland, exploring how technology can be used to increase government transparency.

CityCamp is a series of events, first started in Chicago.

Their goals are to:

1. Bring together government officials, municipal employees, experts, programmers, designers, citizens and journalists to share perspectives and insights about the cities in which they live

2. Create or maintain government transparency and effective local governance using the web as a platform

3. Foster communities of practice and advocacy on the role of information and open data in cities

4. Create outcomes that participants will act on during and after the event
