Municipal Data Hackathon – Johannesburg

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.
