Open Data Day is an annual celebration of open data in Dayton and all over the world. We will be using open data to build applications and visualizations to show the benefits of open data, as well as encouraging the adoption of open data policies in local government, businesses, and civil society.
For this event, instead of meeting at a physical location, we’ll be coordinating via the #opendataday channel on the OpenDayton Slack team. To join, visit http://opendayton.org and click the Slack button.
We’ll have data sets and project ideas for people to work on, though you’re more than welcome to bring your own! Work solo, on a virtual team over slack, or get a team together at your place and build something cool. Build anything from a simple visualization to a complex application. Spend the day hacking on code, or just join us for a few spare hours in the afternoon. The important thing is to have fun, learn something new, and show your appreciation for open data.
