Feedback form is now closed.
An interactive talk/workshop (anyone with a cell phone - smart or non-smart - tablet or laptop can participate) that proposes to empower NYC civic innovators and residents to create and share curated collections (“playlists”) of interesting data points and interactions for the NYC OpenData portal, with the goal of raising awareness, encouraging diverse community engagement and providing tangible social value from this important informational resource. Come get introduced to a public, free, web-based tool that help you learn NYC open data --> signalpattern.com.

The proposal envisions a 30-minute presentation followed by a 30-minute, full-audience-interactive session where everyone will learn how to use Signalpattern to search, use and share “playlists” and/or specific playlist items using live NYC OpenData APIs. This section could easily be longer and more in-depth if participants desire it and the time/room is available. Participants will leave with everything they need to continue building, sharing and using the “playlists” we create in the workshop.
