At the start of March worldwide many people came together to celebrate 'open data' and unlock the value hidden within. Here in New Zealand we were first amongst many with events in Dunedin Christchurch, and Wellington.
We visited aimee whitcroft and Dr Thomas Hartley, organisers of the Wellington event, had a chat with them about what it was all about and then a brief chat with the teams and what they were endeavouring to solve.
(and after a long day of hacking Mike may have then met a few at the pub afterwards)
Update: aimee’s update, “Open Data Day 2019 – a New Zealand-wide event”
