Open Data Hacking at the Library

Working on an open data project, or interested in getting started with government data? Join us at the SF main library and get the raw materials you need to build a story or visualization out of data.

This is a discussion and workgroup, so there's no agenda or structure. Come ready to engage other people, research public data sources, or work on a visualization.

The event is in the afternoon on a Friday. Please don't RSVP if you need to be at work!

The Martin Paley Conference room holds about 15 people comfortably, 20 people squeezed in.

    Great meeting, good discussions about APIs and projects. Kai and Ian showed some cool stuff their working on.

    I'm working on a visual explorer for Bureau of Labor Statistics datasets. I've also worked with the USDA nutrition database, US House of Representatives voting history, and US foreign economic aid. All those have interesting features and stories suitable for visualization.

    I'm interested in learning more about any high-quality public datasets people are familiar with or excited about.
