JUNAR provides open data platforms as SOCRATA does. In California, JUNAR's platforms are used by the City of Pasadena, the City of Santa Clarita, the City of San Jose, and the City of Sacramento.
Mr. Diego May is an expert of using open data to improve democratic governance and public managements in the United States as well as in Latin America, and has spoken on this subject in many US and international conferences including the 2013 UC Berkeley open data conference. Diego has extensive knowledge about using open data to drive (1) greater transparency, (2) collaboration, (3) citizen engagement and also to free up precious staff resources, and he will share it with us on May 21.
As before, Starbucks coffee and cookies will be provided. The meeting will start at 7pm sharp.
Parking along the Brand Blvd costs about $1 per hour, and you may find free parking in nearby small streets.
