OpenDataWeek 2018

A Beginner friendly and language agnostic activity.

About OpenDataWeek:
Open Data is data that can be freely used, re-used and redistributed by anyone - subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and sharealike. To summarize, it is about:

  • Availability and Access
  • Re-use and Redistribution
  • Universal Participation

To realize the importance of OpenData, we are organizing OpenDataWeek from March 2 - 8, 2018 with a mixture of talks, seminars, demonstrations, hackathons and training. Please follow #OpenDataWeek for more updates.
