@OpenDataWR hosts Open Data Day Event — Saturday, 22 Feb 2014 at @Kwartzlab #ODD2014

Open Data Waterloo Region

 

Continuing with the theme of my personal social calendar — On Saturday, 22 February 2014 I’ll be at Open Data Waterloo Region‘s Open Data Day Event, held at Kwartzlab again this year. There’s a schedule, suggested projects, dataset lists and more on Waterloo Region‘s page on the International Open Data Day Hackathon wiki.

Last year William and I started a project to add OpenStreetMap links to Thunderbird’s Lightning calendar. We didn’t finish, so that’s one project to work on this year. Also, since last year I’ve been dabbling with the Food Premise Inspection Data to add the restaurant location data to OpenStreetMap. And I hope to be taking lots of pictures and video of the event.

Come join us! Here’s the bumf:
