Last year the Mayer de Blasio administration presented Open Data Week for the first time in collaboration with BetaNYC and the broader civic tech community.
The administration brought it back for 2018 and you can peruse the 20+ events, and register, directly on the site: www.open-data.nyc
The administration is excited by the huge variety of engagements they have this year – from open data art exhibits, to foster youth projects, conferences, developer engagements, workshops and showcases. While most events are free some have a fee, and the administration also have events in multiple boroughs so make sure you check all the event details before signing up!
