Building on New Zealand's democratic tradition, the release of open data enables civil society and business to use it to grow the economy, strengthen our social and cultural fabric, sustain our environment, and participate in government decision-making. This group is for open data enthusiasts who are keen to learn more about how open data contributes to NZ’s social and economic fabric. Events will include opportunities to share information, build wider networks, and hear how others are achieving success using open data.
For our first open data Wellington meetup of the year, we think some gaming and some planning would be great.
Games: Datopolis, Creative Commons Release 'Em Poker.
Plans: we'd like to take you through our thoughts for how to get the best out of this meetup in 2019, and hear your feedback, thoughts and suggestions.
You can read more about our thoughts at https://data.govt.nz/blog/our-plans-for-wellington-open-data-meetups-this-year/.
We'll provide the venue and some snacks. As always, please let us know if you've any dietary restrictions.
Bring: yourselves and anyone you think is keen to join in.
Venue: Ackama's offices - Level 2, 50 The Terrace, Wellington. Go through the Atrium of 44 The Terrace (look for Superfino cafe) - doors lock at 6pm so if you're late, pop aimee a message (she'll put her number on the door).
