Look. We get that when you think Oakland, you may not instantly think tech. We’re working with Code for Oakland to change that.
Ask.com has made this city home for over a decade, which is why we’re happy to be a presenting sponsor of Code for Oakland. It’s a one-day event where coders, programmers, and members of the community get together to create apps and tools that will improve life here in our town.
In addition to our sponsorship, Askers have volunteered their time for the July 21 event. Folks who join us at Code for Oakland are in for a full day of presentations, workshops, and learning sessions. And of course, there’s the hackathon where teams can take a crack at building a prototype application within the one-day time frame. $5000 in prizes are at stake for the teams who can build something that benefits our beloved Oaktown.
Also supporting the event: neighbors Pandora, Socrata, Code for America, and 2.Oakland, among others—all ready to prove that Oakland is a town for tech. Come down to the Kaiser Center Saturday and watch us teach the Valley a thing or two.
