Update: we will meet at our old trusted location Nomadz!
/dev/haag is a monthly meetup in The Hague that aims to bring together coders, hackers, artists, designers, UX specialists and other 'makers' from The Hague and beyond (about (http://www.meetup.com/devhaag/about/)). Doors open 16h30, talks start 17, we wrap up around 19h30.
This month's program:
• "CitySDK", by Job Spierings, Waag Society, 17h
Cities and municipalities publishing Open Data is a nice idea, but if every single municipality or other level of government publishes their data in their own format and at their own end point, building apps on top of that Open Data just takes too much time. CitySDK (http://dev.citysdk.waag.org/) brings together several open data sources (http://dev.citysdk.waag.org/data) and presents (http://dev.citysdk.waag.org/visualisation/) them in a uniform API (http://dev.citysdk.waag.org/api). You might already know it from this stunning visualisation of all buildings in the Netherlands (http://dev.citysdk.waag.org/buildings/).
• Break: drinks sponsored by the nice people of Ebrella (http://www.ebrella.com/professionals/)
• "Design for joy", by Marrije Schaake, Eend.nl, 18h
The story of OnzeLootjes.nl: about having a side project... but with a group of people.
• Lightning talks
A few slots of 2-5 minutes, slides are optional.
