Open Data Speed Dating

Back by popular demand GTEC is proud to welcome back the Open Data Speed Dating session!

Are you passionate about using Open Data to create innovative solutions to economic, environmental or social problems?

Whether it’s mobile apps, websites, or other creative uses, we understand that finding and understanding Canadian and international open data can be a challenge.

This Speed Dating event will provide the ideal match-making opportunity for Open Data owners and developers, with a focus on Canadian data.

Join us for this rapid-paced, energetic, open and collaborative networking session with a twist. Participants (open data enthusiasts and developers) will be matched with Open Data owners (Curators) from across the federal, provincial/territorial and municipal governments for a series of rapid one-on-one conversations. Each conversation will be unique and defined by you. Discussions can range from opportunities to work more collaboratively on open data project to exploring available data in greater detail and its potential uses or applications. This is also a good opportunity to talk to federal data owners and other open data enthusiasts to brainstorm on potential submissions to future open data challenges in Canada.
