Code for Raleigh: Open Data Working Session

Raleigh's Open Data Portal Data.RaleighNC.gov, which allows access to city data sets in open and standard ways for non-technical and tech savvy users is undergoing a major site redesign.

The new design will require individual dataset clean-up, which will require updating all of the 300 datasets to make sure the metadata is updated.

Jason Hare, City of Raleigh’s Open Data Program Manager, reached out to the Code for Raleigh Brigade for assistance to help complete the job. Hare said, “Involving citizens in crowdsourcing civic engagement initiatives like Open Raleigh is at the heart of what the program is about.”

Join the Code for Raleigh Brigade as we support the City of Raleigh organize hundreds of datasets. Be involved in the City’s Open Raleigh Portal and make an impact in your city. No coding skills required. Just mad civic-minded organization skills needed.

What to bring: Laptop, small extension cord, notebook, markers

    The 'people' group did a total of....... 9 datasets. Quality over quantity, I think? Or it just took me that long to learn the what's and why's of "obfuscated" data.

    Something has come up last minute and I can't make it tonight. Wife needs me as she had a deviated septum surgery yesterday. I'll put in a couple of hours of cleanup tomorrow to continue this work.

      Reid asked me about food budget, but I didn't ask if he was getting food brought in or not.

      If we order pizza, use promo code TARHEELS at Papa John's for 50% off (because they won yesterday).
