'Open Data' meetup

In this Meetup, Oliver Rack will present the concept of Open Data and the corresponding initiative in the Rhein Neckar region. In brief, it will be about how public authorities such as the city of Mannheim make parts of their data freely accessible and usable by everyone and the opportunities which arise thereby. The talk will be in German, due to the nature of the data. But please come as well if you're interested in the topic and your German is less than perfect. We'll surely find a way that you will nonetheless understand the essentials.

    Hi all! Good question Svetlana. Beside the location of the building Alte Feuetwache advisory fining the roo is needed. If you look upfront the Feuerwache spotting the typical big doors for former fire fighters (and currently photographs of immigrants) here is on the left side of the building around the corner a little parking place and the entrance to the unit with rooms.
    The "Seminar Raum" is on the 2nd floor.

    Best, Svetlana
