International Open Data Hack Day - Dublin
Saturday, December 3, 2011 from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM (GMT)
What is it all about:
It’s a gathering of citizens in cities around the world to write applications, liberate data, create visualizations and publish analyses using open public data to show support for and encourage the adoption open data policies by the world's local, regional and national governments.
Who is the event for: If you have an idea for using open data, want to find an interesting project to contribute towards, or simply want to see what's happening, then definitely check the Hackfest out. No matter your skill set or interests, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to learn and help the global open data community grow.
Developer: We need computer cowboys and cowgirls like yourself to wrangle data into something useful. That means visualization, notification, integration, etc., all in the name of doing something crazy and fantastic.
Designers: We need people like you to make the everything look amazing, feel intuitive, and have a smooth user experience. The best application in the world that no one can use... isn't much use! You know the drill.
Librarians: I heard you folks like books and eat catalogs of data for breakfast. You beautiful people are going to scour the earth for interesting data, help the rest of us figure out what’s important, and generally be useful.
Statisticians: YES! YOU ARE SO NEEDED. Seriously. While we can find it, blow it up, calculate it, and make it look pretty, we needs us some mean number crunchin’ to present meaningful visualizations. Join up.
Citizens: We need you the most. If it weren’t for you, this whole thing wouldn’t be happening. We need ideas, cheerleaders, and friends to spread the word.
