The City of Austin has enacted an open government policy, and the City Manager has issued an open data directive. Late last year, the City Manager created a high-level board to execute on an open data program.
Kerry O’Connor, the city’s Chief Innovation Officer, participates on that board. She will give an update on the city’s open data initiatives, and discuss plans for the coming months.
The meetup location is easily accessed by public transportation and has plentiful parking.
Open Austin hosts a monthly meet-up, to discuss local open government and civic technology issues. Our meet-ups are free and open to the public.
