Jump to: navigation, search

The NYC Open Data Policy Hack Day will follow an unconference-style format. There will be two, hour-long breakout sessions where smaller groups will focus on topics of specific interest. To get a jump-start on the day, use the links to the left to familiarize yourself with the policies, standards, and guidelines. Then, return to this page; add topics or issues you'd like to address directly to the list, or in the comments below. (We've put in a few ideas to get things started.)
