Open Data for Development Camp 2012
The Open Data for Development Camp is part of The Kenya Open Data Pre-Incubator Program. This is a six-month experiment to help accelerate the ability for the public to make sense of data and to galvanize engagement around critical public issues.
We bring together a diverse group of policy-makers, academia, development aid workers, researchers, journalists, ICT-staff and software developers active in the field of Open Development Data. The aim is to share experiences and networks, build tools, and show the power of Open Data.
So, let’s take Open Development to the next level. Come and explore the full potential of Open Data and its implications for international cooperation!
The Open Data for Development Camp will take place at iLabAfrica at Strathmore University. We promise you a combination of: Keynote Speakers, Workshops, Best Practices, Speed Geeking, Hack Space, Networking, Exchange of knowledge and needs, Sharing Data Sets, Co-Creation, Open Data Visualizations, and Inspiration.
Come and join us!
Register before Monday the 18th of June through Eventbrite and we will save a spot for you! Detailed information about the event will be available soon on www.openforchange.info.
We're looking forward to meet you on June 27 & 28 in Nairobi.
