Following up from a data hackathon and a community outreach program, there are things to tell and discuss!


• 7pm: Event Kick off

• 7:05pm: Mapping Brunei: The Journey and some Tools and Tricks for your Mapping needs

Tim will recount the arduous gathering data process from the previous data hackathon We'll touch on mapping tools and general mapping information needed for any mapping/data project

• 7:30pm: I did a thing

A informal section to share something you've done or learned. Ideally under 5 minutes

• 7:50pm: Community Outreach Program

A open discussion about the recent community outreach program that Tim was involved in and ways to quickly prototype stuff, ways to help and ideas from all

• 8:10pm: Informal general discussions and hangout

Some discussion points:
- Events in Brunei: open discussion about events in Brunei. Are they effective? Is there a consistent lack of time for the event in general (e.g. single day hackahtons). Who are they being catered to? Following up with participants and learning from previous experiences
- The copy pasting of Brunei businesses: from nasi katok, to cube shops and modern cafes
- Open data in Brunei: the continual discussion of open data and access to them
