Team! I am very happy to announce that the next Chicago City Data User Group meeting will host as our speaker Simona Rollinson, Chief Information Officer for the Cook County Government. She will talk about her views on open government and open data, and we will take a look at the Cook County data sets.
I spent some time with Simona last week and she is a fascinating individual. She has 15+ years of experience leading change and driving technology innovation, new product development, global expansion that spans both government and the enterprise (she comes from the highly competitive education-focused software market). Her department recognizes the benefits that come with opening up their data, and I am delighted to have her as our guest speaker! Tell your friends.
