Just a quick shout out to upcoming Open Data events crying out for participation from well minded coding citizens like yourselves:
In sunny down under (Sydney) on 10-11 September. No travel bursaries but it is free! Sign up here. It’s a hacking extravaganza for anyone interested in helping liberate data or hacking on OpenAustralia projects. We look forward to following the tags. If you’re gonna go then sign up for an account now. If their mammals are anything to go by we’re hoping for some wacky uses of open data.
This year held in Warsaw and taking place on 20-21 October. Run by the fabulous Open Knowledge Foundation it boasts two days of talks, code sprints and workshops. The week run up will have satellite events including a workshop from our fine selves so come along and tell us how we can make your scraping life better. Early bird tickets are still available so get them while they’re hot here. There are travel bursaries so check out those too. Get the full programme here.
In Berlin, Germany on 28-29 September, this conference offers training on data sources of development cooperation and a hackday for programmers to develop application of aid data. Register here (PS: it’s in German but the event is in English). Check out the full programme here.
We hope you all can make it and help aid data, government data and Australia get ScraperWikied
