Ever wish you could track changes down to the cell in NYC Open Data? Well now you can! In this workshop we’ll use Qri, a free & open source tool, to do just that. We’ll work with attendees to explore NYC open data, add versions that clean & customize data for your own use, add your own documentation & notes, review changes from version to version, and publish your refined dataset for others to see & use. The value you add to an NYC open dataset can now be shared with the wider community, facilitating community collaborations to improve the entire environment of NYC Open data.

From there we’ll provide attendees with copy-and-paste code examples that automate dataset updating. Attendees need not know how to program to get a lot of value out of this workshop.
