Let's go to Bratislava! #2

Join us for Rubyslava / PyVo #31 - the Open Data Edition!


Tech and other challenges in Open Courts project (@samuelmolnar, @pavolzbell, @otvorenesudy)

Scraping data from ASP.NET based sites can be tricky. Dealing with automatic form filling, viewstate variable and dynamic POST fields is a necessity in this case. Normalizing and linking raw data on which we can never assume its completeness is hard. Especially when matching judges from various sources only by their names. Building open data sometimes requires direct contact with departments of our government and as we all know, this is the part where the real fun begins.

How government projects work...NOT! (Peter Mešťaník)

Since 2007 works on government projects for healthcare, army and even first e-poll in Slovakia. He will talk about the biggest obstacles and problems in developing software for governments and why we don't have open data now.

Rubyslava a PyVo is sponsored by @jetbrains. Speakers get a free yearly licence for a product of his choice: RubyMine, PyCharm or PHPStorm.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
