The City of Mesa and Code for America are hosting an Open Data regional event on September 4th. The benefits of Open Data range from enhancing government performance to increasing public participation. Show up and explore the process and outcomes of implementing data driven initiatives.
- City officials who have adopted open data policies (Phoenix, Tucson)
- Start-ups/entrepreneurs who use open data, creating new job opportunities.
- Community groups actively developing projects that affect the city and it’s residents (eg: transit, health, park apps).
- ASU faculty and staff researchers who benefit by and contribute to open data sets (eg: budget, water usage).
At past events people walked away energized and committed to implement new practices, host hackathons and develop community partnerships. It is an opportunity to share, ask questions and learn from other departments, partner cities, start-ups and community members.
