Slides from my presentation at HSLU this morning are available here. We talked about the Internet data economy, how to run a good hackathon, and an introduction to how we use Frictionless Data standards for publishing open data. As we did in preparation for the first hackdays, we plan to collect data sources on dribdat and create as many Data Packages as we can. Here are some useful resources if you’d like to help:

And if you just have an idea for a dataset we should use, drop us a line!


Some initial challenges have been posted, and the team is looking for more open datasets to promote for the upcoming hackdays. Drop us a line if you’ve got something to share!
