Developers and data researchers are targeted participants, we invite you to prepare your laptop to prototype or documenting, propose, discuss and exchange opinion on data topics at the 6hr hackathon. You are also welcome to join the 2.5hr seminar.

Open Data Day in Hong Kong is aimed to foster the development of open data, which

1. If required data does not exist in open data format but exist in public webpages, do something (at hackathon) which can tell government/public that we should have this kind of open data.

2. If open data exist, use it (at hackathon) and demonstrate it is useful and have a use case, which tells government/public, it still has a small gap between current PSI and real open data.
