Open Data Day 2019

Open Data Day 2019

DFW Open Data Day on March 2nd 2019 at the Dallas Main Public Library, in collaboration with International Open Data Day, the City of Dallas, the City of Denton, the City of Addison, BloomReach, Rogue Metrics, the UNT Libraries and TechMill.


8:30 AM to 5 PM at The J. Erik Jonsson Central Library, on March 2nd.


Open Data Day is a gathering of tech volunteers in DFW to write applications, liberate data, create visualizations and publish analyses using public municipal data to show support for and encourage the adoption of open data policies across the region. It is a good chance for students and local developers to use public data to produce something useful for their community.
