[3.7] Opendata.ch/2018

We are still cooling down from the Food Hackdays while work continues on a 2020+ strategy in parallel to many other projects, not least of which our data literacy initiative. This year’s conference will take us to St. Gallen in the northeast of the country, where we also hosted a hackathon in 2016.

I’m very much looking forward to running a BarCamp-style unconference along the lines of Opendata.ch/2016. You can already submit any open data projects you wish to show & share here:

And don’t forget - if you have recent student work with open data, you may be eligible!

Opendata.ch/2018. July 3, 2018: the day. FHS St. Gallen: the place. Be there, or be square. 'nuff said :wink:

Our conference is just one month away…

As promised, we are about to start showcasing all the exciting work being done by the Swiss community at https://hack.opendata.ch - keep us posted if you have any additional ideas or feedback!

The conference last week was a success thanks to our many guests and presenters. There is a recap in German focusing on policy issues from Netzwoche.ch and we announced a winner of our first Student Award, as well as the nominated projects at Opendata.ch. For a behind-the-scenes look, check out my blog post:

With thanks to @Nikki and the communications team at Open Knowledge, here is a new post with expanded coverage of the conference:
