Description

Join us on Saturday, 2 March 2019, for NYC School of Data — a community conference that demystifies the policies and practices around civic data, technology, and service design.


This year’s conference kicks off NYC’s annual Open Data Week and features OVER 30 sessions organized by NYC’s civic technology, data, and design community for YOU! Our conversations and workshops will feed your mind and empower you to improve your neighborhood.


This year’s conversations will focus on four key areas: digital literacy & privacy, smart & wise cities, effective & open government, and civic & government technology.


All participants will be served a light breakfast, lunch, snacks, and beverages.


Thanks to Microsoft, we will continue to have on-site, free childcare staffed by professionals from Sitter Studios.
