Event Details

Developing the Caribbean is the first regional Conference and Software Developer Competition of its kind, focused on Open Data and Social development. Set to take place in the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and Trinidad & Tobago, it combines the thrill and competition a code sprint, with the social objectives on government, NGOs and Civil Society. It It brings together:

  • Governments and Institutions in the Caribbean that embrace Open Data as an essential component of their information dissemination strategies and a way to work towards development goals.
  •  Members of Civil Society that are able to identify Caribbean priorities and challenges that demand evidence-based information for decision-making and problem-solving
  • Community of Web Developers and Designers that will make use of available data to create new services and provide new ways for communicating valuable information and positively impacting and empowering different communities to achieve developmental goals.

 
Together, these different communities will work together to build open institutional data approaches and use new information and communication technologies as catalysts for increased regional collaboration in finding indigenous solutions.
