What is Open Data Day you ask?
Open Data Day is an annual celebration of open data all over the world. For the fifth time in history, groups from around the world will create local events on the day where they will use open data in their communities. It is an opportunity to show the benefits of open data and encourage the adoption of open data policies in government, business and civil society.
All outputs are open for everyone to use and re-use.
The Edmonton Public Library is marking the occasion with their yearly Hackathon (plus a whole lot more) and you can read more about it below or check out the link for yourself here.
Edmonton Public Library is partnering this year with MacEwan University and the City of Edmonton to celebrate International Open Data Day 2017. Again we’re calling all students, hackers, developers, designers, statisticians and anyone with an interest in open data to spend the day experimenting and creating with open data!
Along with the hackathon, we also have a number of excellent events lined up this year including hands-on workshops and a Speed Data-ing session where you can browse exhibits and meet others who are working on exciting Open Data related work and research.
Light lunch, coffee and snacks will be provided. Click here for more details and resources.
