Details

It is Open Data Day all around the world! Open Data Day is an annual celebration of open data all over the world. It is an opportunity to show the benefits of open data and encourage the adoption of open data policies in government, business and civil society

Along side the global movement we're going to have a hack day to build/learn something related to open data or just data in general 😃

Open Data Challenge
------------------------------
- Try build something (an app / visualization, / Spreadsheet or Excel chart) using open data
- At the end of the day we'll have a time to share what we've learnt / built
- This could even be something you start working now before Open Data Day itself and for you to share during the day itself 👍
- Feel free to work by yourself or in a group of your own choosing

Agenda
-----------
[12:00] Intro and Q&A
[12:10] Hack on projects / Learn what you want
[17:00] Quick show & tell about what was learned/created

Things are free and easy during the day to let you explore what you need. We'll be available for questions to discuss and chat about things as well

Ideas
-------
- Create a visualization of some of our local datasets https://www.data.gov.bn/
- Request a dataset if there doesn't exist one http://data.gov.bn/Pages/DatasetRequest.aspx
- Look at other data repositories around the world to find something interesting https://github.com/awesomedata/awesome-public-datasets
- Create your own local dataset
- Use Google Sheets as a database https://github.com/jsoma/tabletop
- Learn Python / R
- Other ideas https://opendataday.org/#resources
