Welcome to NYC School of Data 2018 & Hack Hall
International open data day and NYC School of Data 2018 is here!!
This year’s we are asking you to envision better community resources to improve our neighborhoods. Join us for thought provoking sessions and small group workshops on digital literacy, privacy, smart cities, open government, and civic technology. Come spend the day learning or working on a civic project in our #hackhall!
We’ll be at Rise New York, 43 W 23rd St, New York, NY 10010.
If you’re attending the event, doors open with breakfast starting at 9:00 am. Please be prepared to go through a security check point and be prepared to show photo identification. The morning keynote begins at 10 AM. To avoid standing in line, please show up before 9:30 AM!
What to bring:
NYC School of Data is a mix of panels, workshops, and hackable projects. We are really excited to introduce #hackhall. If you want to work on hackhall project or take a workshop, bring a laptop. Our workshops will be a mixture of technical and non-technical sessions. Some are recommending laptops. If you bring your laptop, don’t forget your power adapter!
FYI – We will not have a coat check, but we will have shared coat racks around the facility.
Speakers — if your laptop doesn’t have an HDMI port, please bring a dongle.
