Spring Open Data CodeFest

[Update: posters are available in colour or grayscale.]

We’re joining forces with the University of Waterloo Open Data Initiative and the Student Developer Network to host an Open Data CodeFest on Saturday, March 31.

Come work on something interesting using open data and meet others in the Waterloo open data community! Bring your laptop and enthusiasm. Data sets will be available from the University of Waterloo and the Region of Waterloo, though data sets from elsewhere are fine too. [Edit: Data will also be available from the City of Waterloo.] This isn’t just about coding, but maps, graphs, visualizations, and so on — anything that is useful, interesting, or shows the potential of open data.

The CodeFest will be held from 11am to 4pm at the University of Waterloo’s Student Life Centre, in the Multi-Purpose Room (between the food court and the Great Hall). (Facebook event here.) We’ve got the room until 4, but if there’s interest, space can be found to continue the CodeFest later than that. In case you’re unfamiliar with the campus, the university has an online map. The SLC is a short walk from the iXpress stop at Davis Centre; if you’re driving, there is free weekend parking in Lot X north of Columbia Street.
