This time we have joined forces with the good people from Virk Data (https://data.virk.dk/).
Together with Virk.dk (Erhvervsstyrelsen) we will host a hackathon with the focus on open governmental data.
Lunch sponsored by Virk Data (http://data.virk.dk) and location sponsored by Opbeat (http://opbeat.com).
For a long time we as developers have wanted more open public data. Now we actually got it.
Virk Data currently lists 178 datasets (http://datahub.virk.dk/data/search) and there are many other sources such as http://data.kk.dk/ and http://www.odaa.dk/
On the day we will bring historical CVR (central company register) data (http://datahub.virk.dk/dataset/historisk-cvr-udtr-k) in a Django friendly form. ::Placeholder Energistyrelsen data::
