Open Data is about the free flow of information.  It can be information as mundane as water usage or as transformative as government records.

Triangle Open Data Day (TODD) focuses on three issues:

  1. Open Data Education
  2. Hacking for Civic Good
  3. Uniting the Triangle through Data

 Track 1: Education

Open Data Day

Track 1 is a series of workshops on Saturday, February 22, 2014. It is geared toward the general public and anyone with an interest in the burgeoning Open Data movement in the Triangle. Topics may include:

  • What is Open Data?
  • Examples of Open Data
  • What you can do with Open Data
  • The Importance of Maps

Registration is open for TODD Track 1.

 Track 2: Hackers

Triangle hackers

Track 2 focuses on implementing projects – hacking for public good.

Programmers, data analysts, web developers, public officials and students may all be interested in Track 2.

Participants pitch ideas, form groups and try to complete at least a prototype of their application by the end of the weekend. Track 2 runs Saturday and Sunday, Feb 22-23, 2014.

Registration is open for TODD Track 2.
