NYC Open Data Policy Hack Day
Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 11:00 AM (EDT)
Help develop the plan for NYC government to unlock its data!
NYC recently enacted Local Law 11 of 2012, which mandates citywide open data in machine-readable formats through a centralized, publicly accessible web site. The NYC Open Data portal was launched in late 2011 to meet this need. The legislation additionally mandates the creation of technical standards in support of this initiative.
Join NYC DoITT’s team from the Office of Strategic Technology Development and the open government community – policymakers, technologists, civic hackers, app developers, academics, journalists and data enthusiasts – for an engaging day of discussions, drafting, planning and hacking.
