Community Data Fest in Toronto

As part of my work with Acacia Consulting & Research,  I helped organize and actively participated in two full days of discussions and strategizing about community data in Canada. We familiarly called this community data palooza!  Below is some information about those two days.

Open Data Panel – Girl Geek Dinner Ottawa

The Geek Ladies have invited me to speak at their Girl Geek Dinner this week!  Awesome!

Are there Girl Geeks behind Open Data in Ottawa? You bet there are!

Ottawa’s Open Data Champion: Councillor Marianne Wilkinson
Our own app creator: Emily Daniels
The talented Open Data Scholar and Advocate: Tracey Lauriault

We’d also like to give a huge thanks to Mary Beth Baker for introducing us to this amazing panel. Mary Beth makes up 1/3 of the driving force behind Open Data Ottawa and without her, this event would not be made possible.
