Volunteer at Code for Oakland

If you’re not sure what you want to hack on on Saturday, but want to participate in the community, we are looking for volunteers.

Sign up here

We need logistical help with setup, cleanup, getting lunch, and so forth, as well as mentoring from experienced participants.  Mentoring can be about technical details, data knowledge, community participation, and more.

You can volunteer for as much or as little time as you want.  It’s a great way to participate if you can’t hang out the whole day!
