The open data community in Ottawa has grown significantly over the past several years. To continue to support the growing community, Open Data Ottawa is again organizing an event to celebrate International Open Data Day.
This event is slightly different than those we've organized in the past. There will be a series of short presentation from different members of the open data community, followed by casual networking and discussions about open data.
Are you new to open data? This is the perfect opportunity to learn about what open data is, get a better understanding of what types of open data are available, and learn about different ways it's being used by members of our community.
We hope you'll join us to celebrate #opendataday!
