Join OpenCorporates, Opendata.ch and Open Data Zürich for a "Map the Banks" #FlashHacks event in Switzerland!
More info about the "Map the Banks" mission, and registration on Eventbrite!
Drop in with your laptop, charger and enthusiasm to join us for a day of liberating datasets from the clutches of closed data. Map the Banks is a campaign by OpenCorporates & partners to liberate all financial licenses so we can map what the global financial industry looks like. Find out more here: mapthebanks.com
If you can code and have never written a bot - this is an excellent opportunity to learn! If you can't code but would still like to participate - there is plenty to do including writing stories on the data that has been liberated and visualising it. If you're not really sure about any of this but would like to come along to see what it's all about - feel free to join us!
4:00 - 8:30 PM | #FlashHack-ing starts 8:30 onwards | Drinks & Networking
We'll have tea, coffee, snacks available throughout the day. There will also be drinks and nibbles in the evening. Thanks to Open Data Zurich for their support.
