Making awesome apps with open data

1,419

Published on

Presentation for the Appsterdam Weekly Lunchtime Lectures and (in abbreviated version) the Dutch Python user's meet up.

Abstract:
In the last year, open data in the Netherlands has grown tremendously. The government helps this not just by publishing mountains of free to use data, but even sponsors contests with significant prizes for the best open data apps.

We'll take a look at the Dutch open data landscape, covering what open data is, what kinds of datasets we have, open data contests, and what it takes to make an awesome app with open data. Erik will talk about the story behind his own prize-winning open data apps, and what to do with your apps after the contest.
