Open Data Hack Day, Galway – Saturday May 14th

leave a comment »

An other Open Data Hack Day will be held on Saturday the 14th May from 10am to 5pm in the 091labs in Galway city center.

The goal of this Hack Day is to build on the work that gone into the previous hack days and to build on the opendata.ie website to promote Open Data in Ireland. But if anyone wants to come along with their own idea for a project we will find other interested parties to push the project forward.

To give people an idea of what happens on the day the following is an incomplete list of projects that people have worked on at previous hack days. Each project involved finding and collecting data, and in most cases writing a computer application to visualize and make sense of the data:

But for those that aren’t of a technical nature but are interested in Open Data, please come along during the day to see what is happening and to share your ideas of what would be a really cool application that you are interested in.

We will be around all day so everyone is encouraged to come along for the whole day or only for as long as they can make it.
