Last night under the watch of the news media and police helicopters, the first ever Oakland Innovators awards were given out by the InOak hosts on the rooftop garden at the Kaiser Center by the lake. Urban Strategies Council’s Research team, OaklandLocal and a few great local businesses were awarded the first ever OpenSource Innovators Award by InOak for our team effort in putting together the first ever Code For Oakland hackathon and datacamp in the east bay. We’re excited about the prospects for more open government and opendata in our city and are close to announcing the first ever CityCamp in Oakland too!
