Public Data Devthon in Hyderabad from May 7-8, 2016

The Public Data Devthon will be held on May 7th & 8th at T-Hub. (http://devthon.org/edition/factly-data-devthon-ZcuxG)

Open data is contributing significantly to promote transparency in governance. It is also supposed to make public more aware of what the government is doing. Unfortunately, Government/Public data is complex and difficult to understand for most people. It is both difficult to access and difficult to make sense of. Factly (www.factly.in) is an initiative to make public data more meaningful to the common man.

Public data is used to a large extent by journalists, NGOs, activists, designers, researchers and those within the government to promote transparency and accountability. It also enables improving policies and spins off new projects in governance, industries and organizations.

In order to make public data more relevant and comprehensible for a larger audience, we propose a Devthon that will bring together public data experts, data enthusiasts, developers, researchers, engineers, designers and startups in a journey to discover challenges and opportunities in public and government data.
