Milwaukee Data Meetup

These meetups are a chance to showcase how people and organizations are using and producing data in interesting or innovative ways. Let us know if you want to host a meetup!

Anyone can attend (designers, front-end developers, back-end developers, mobile developers, idea folks, social media people). We'll pick places with beer and food generally, and definitely places with WiFi.

      Nancy, just wanted to share with you that I utilize the City website every day in some capacity at my job at Riverworks. We administer two BIDs and have a nonprofit that focuses on community development in the Harambee and Riverwest neighborhoods. Not only do I use City web-based applications, but I also work with Todd a lot and use MPROP sets through GIS. I appreciated the time you took for us last week, and if you ever want any perspective on how community groups use City applications, or want to suggest how we can use them better or work with you to help make them better, please keep me posted.

    Interesting, although it wasn't quite what I had expected. It was more of an overview of the city's data apps available through their website (of which I think most people in my line of work are familiar with). I think I was expecting more to hear about other data sets and sources from the city that people may not be as familiar with and how we can access those. It was interesting to hear about the changes coming to the city's website and some of their database systems. Also interesting to hear the background on some of the city's systems and why they are set up or function they way they do.

    Nancy provided me with a good amount of information that I can use immediately both on-the-job and as a Milwaukee resident.

    Had a great time at the meetup. Learned a lot about what the city of MKE is doing to provide more open data and also what is available now. Also, really excited about some of the projects that were discussed. Lastly, great pizza.

    Hey folks. Looking forward to tomorrow! I'll get a mix of pizzas for us to share. Looking forward to learning more about what the City is up to with data!
