Raleigh, NC – There is a new event on the calendar that looks to be a great event for open data in NC, the NC Open Data Hackshop. Waffle.io and the U.S. Census Bureau are teaming up to run this event. What is really cool is that the U.S. Census Bureau will be showing us how to access all of their great data through their CitySDK toolbox. Attendance is limited so sign up quickly!
What’s a Hackshop?
Throughout the course of the event, teams will follow a lightweight framework guided by Hackshop organizers that instills principles of running lean and maximizing limited resources (using elements of agile and lean startup principles). Teams will learn best practices for delivering a product from idea to prototype in less than 24 hours with the help of agile and lean experts.
