Open Data in Practice – Open Data Project Lifecycle with Hands-on CKAN Experience


Open Data is no longer a new buzz word. It is now a well stablished technology with clear initiatives worldwide, new services, and many opportunities. We believe it is time to the Egyptian market to start the practical steps to exploit this technology to create new services and change the traditional way of doing business. This course is the first in a planned series to cover Open Data from practical point of view. The focus of this course is to present the Open Data project lifecycle and give an overview on the tools that can help. As CKAN is the widely used Open Data Platform, the course gives a hands-on experience on CKAN aiming at breaking the borders to Open Data world.

This is a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) course. Each attendee is expected to bring along a portable computer with Wi-Fi accessibility.
