Municipal data hackathon focused on Johannesburg. Complaining about Johannesburg service delivery is a suburban trait. The Hack Hackers chapter of Johannesburg is doing something more than just whining – they looking at the available data and through that working out ways to make Johannesburg work. Please register for the event.
Municipal data matters: from finances to service delivery, the numbers provide infinite story potential. Join us as we hack municipal data on service delivery and then use it to create minimum viable products by the end of the day
Paul Berkowitz* from Citydex will deliver the keynote address, Municipal data – gaps in the data and gaps in our knowledge, before we get down to the serious business of brainstorming & coding.
