Event description

Description

Join us for another celebration of open data! For the seventh time in history, groups from around the world will be gathering to show the benefits of open data and encourage the adoption of open data policies in government, business and civil society.

It’ll be a day of learning, experimenting, and exploring what’s possible when companies and governments open their data.

This year, the global themes are: Open Research Data, Tracking Public Money Flows, Open Mapping, and Data for Equal Development, but all projects leveraging open data are welcome!

In addition to hacking, we will have opportunities to learn about open data from government officials and discuss how open data can be used to improve our communities.

Who? Neighbors, designers, engineers, data scientists and people living/working in SF

Why? Raising awareness of open data and finding creative insights and solutions to civic issues through its use

What? Solving issues both local, regional, and worldwide through the use of open data

We are gathering available resources and problem statements on a collaborative document in advance of the event.

Ticket sales will be used to help cover the cost of food for the day, but please reach out to hello@codeforsanfrancisco.org if this is a barrier to attending and we'll be happy to waive the fee.
