We're excited to host Nicole Fenton (http://nicolefenton.com/) of 18F (https://18f.gsa.gov/) for a talk about content strategy and open data, followed by a Q&A session - come prepared with questions!
If you're not in Brooklyn, watch on LiveStream (https://livestream.com/hugeinc/csmeetup).
Everything in context: Open data content strategy.
Open data can inform design and policy decisions, improve government services, and help save people’s lives. In this session, Nicole will talk about what it’s like to be a content interloper in the data world, and how to make data make sense to the public. She’ll share methods her team uses to put numbers in context, along with insights from her recent work with FBI crime data.
