In Philadelphia, Data Panel by Night, Data Camp by Day

We love open government and open data — it’s what makes much of our work possible — and that’s why the CFA Philly team is spending time in our last week inAi??PhiladelphiaAi??to spread the open data message. And weAi??certaintyAi??aren’t alone. Last night we held a Digital Philly Open Data event, graciously co-hosted by Young Involved Philadelphia and Technically Philly, in the lovely Corzo Center of the University of the Arts. Over 60 Philadelphians packed the hall to talk about what kind of data we want from government and what we’d could accomplish with it.

We got some great ideas, like trying to develop a way to map out what neighborhoods would be affected by upcoming city legisalation, getting more detail on police action, making zoning data easy to access, and more. Video highlights from the event, courtesy of Technically Philly, are below.

And we’re not done. Tomorrow (FebruaryAi??25th) Code for America and local GIS extraordinairesAi??Azavea will be hosting Data Camp Philly. Hosted at Azavea’s wonderful office, Data Camp is a one-day “hackathon” focusing on bringing together city data and civic-minded technologists to build apps. We’re going to demo an app we built at an earlier meetup, give tutorials on skills and practices we’ve learned, and generally bask in the glory of open government data.

So get your open data on with us tomorrow. Anyone who is interested in research, design, or software development is welcome! buy levitra online paypal. #buy Levitra online. buy levitra online cheap. Register here for Data Camp.
