California Data Demo Day

The Data Coalition and Grant Thornton are hosting a California Data Demo Day, on October 19th in Sacramento. The event will bring together state agency officials to explore the benefits of open data. Our panelists will share stories of open data success sourced from their agency – by sharing common themes of external transparency and internal efficiency.

California Leaders on Open Data: Step-by-Step Progress, But No Master Plan

Last week the Data Coalition held our second annual California Data Demo Day in Sacramento. Over 100 open data supporters joined us for two panel discussions and a roomful of tech demos. Several California agencies are making steady, step-by-step progress toward open data. Agencies like the Department of Justice and the State Treasurer’s office have started to adopt consistent standards to make their data searchable, then publishing data for all to scrutinize and use. And many California municipalities are going further, publishing comprehensive open data sets on topics like spending and public safety.
