This post was written on Open Data Day, Saturday 23rd February about the latest data expeditions from the School of Data team in Amsterdam and Berlin.
Open Data Day in Berlin and we’re at the ZEIT Online offices. There’s pizza, alcohol-free beer, plenty of Club Mate and we’re ready to roll…
The day kicks off with a brief introduction to the world of Open Data and pitches from proposed projects.
School of Data is here and gearing up to some data expeditions. It’s handy that the first part of the day, teams have been working on completing the Open Data Census, which this year has been extended to include city-level data.
Berlin storms ahead and is the first city to complete the census, partially because we have representatives from the City of Berlin to help with some of the answers.
Kicking off with the census was a great way to get people familiar with what data was out there in time for some data expeditions based upon that data to start.
