SmartOakland evolved from a spontaneous, crowd-sourced, group of volunteers responding to a 2-week challenge to co-create the City of Oakland's vision of its future as a Smart City, in 2016, into a growing network of Oaklanders gathering through the Vision Architecture Smart City Meetup Group coming from health, sustainability, education, public services, non-profits, and businesses. We use our expertise to grow group knowledge and see what we can fix and build together. Here are presentations from our Meetups going back to January 2016...Join Us
