Data lovers who want to help Oakland become a little more transparent can take part in Oakland Data Day. Volunteers at the free event this Saturday will be working on several projects including providing useful data for city boards and commissions.

People who aren't that tech savvy are also welcome. They can help expand the Oakland Answers website, which allows users to type a question about city government and get relevant information.

The event is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Hub Oakland, 2323 Broadway.
