### What is NYC School of Data?

Join us for BetaNYC’s annual community-driven civic tech conference. Participants come to learn, network and collaborate around public interest technology, data and design in New York City. With programming support from the Open Data Team at the NYC Office of Technology and Innovation, our conference convenes city officials, technologists, designers, data analysts, and community members around open data, civic technology, and service design in New York City.

This year we are back at CUNY School of Law on March 18th, 2023 to commemorate the 13th anniversary of international Open Data Day, the 11th anniversary of the City’s transformative Open Data Law, and conclude NYC Open Data Week.

There will be trainings, workshops, demos, talks, presentations, and office hours with NYC agencies on topics like data literacy, privacy, smart cities, open government, service design, and civic engagement. Our goal is to equip YOU with tools and information that support your efforts to build a better civic society for all New Yorkers.

Come learn and contribute to the next decade of technology, data, and policy — by us, for us!
