California Data Camp: Exploring State Data
It will be a barcamp style event: All are welcome to come and discuss issues of government data and transparency. Imagine getting help on choosing your next home by viewing crime data and rentals on a map. Or seeing restaurant ratings and violations based on your GPS location. These are just some ideas of what is possible when government data is made public.
- When: Saturday, November 7, 8am to 6 pm
- Where: Citizen Space
425 2nd Street, #100, San Francisco
As part of this event we will hold a: "DataSF App Contest"
We will have a Web App contest with X prizes for the best web applications built on the day of the event around any of the 100 datasets recently released through DataSF.org. Think you are the most badass programmer in the city? Come prove it and improve how our city functions at the same time.
Judges for the contest will include technology, civic and business leaders in the San Francisco community.
- When: November 7, 2009 8am - all day.
- Where: Citizen Space
- RSVP: EventBrite or on the Spot.Us Pitch
