This Saturday, software developers and designers from around the world will build applications based on Open-Data.
Despite the fact that Montreal does not currently offer open-data, these newly built tools will be able to help Montrealers to better understand and interact with their city.
Montreal Open-Data stars will be there! This includes, but is not limited to, the creator of Resto-Net.ca, the creator of Patiner Montreal, the brain behind Open Parliament and the creator who built Déchets Montréal.
Software developer or not, go and grab a coffee this Saturday, December 4th, between 10AM and 5PM to see engaged citizens in action around civic data on the Montreal city website.
The event will be at Station-C : 5369 rue St. Laurent.
To help Montreal Ouvert decide what projects their energies are best spent on, post your comments on their wiki page.
