The third annual International Open Data Hackathon is this Saturday, and it's an exciting opportunity to explore what's possible with datasets.
There will be hackathon events all over the world, bringing people together to find and use public data in a way that helps citizens engage with the information.
Sunlighters have participated in the past, and our own Eric Mill is one of the people helping organize this year's DC hackathon along with our friend Josh Tauberer of GovTrack.
Want to find an Open Data Day event near you? There's a great map here to help! If you're in the DC area and want to register, you can put your name on the waitlist.
