Someone has said right that,”Leave the big decision for the last minute”. Probably that’s why it was on last minute that i finally made it to the Open Data Camp. As this was my 3rd open data camp. Which was houseful as expected. I was accompanied by my friend Rishabh Singh.It started with keynote on Open data in digital India which was given by Honorable P.D. Rai (M.P Sikkim). He also quoted that,”I’m not the executive, I’m a lawmaker. I don’t represent the government. I question it as much as you do”. Which was the quote of the day.
Then after a short introduction session the First Panel Discussion begins and the topic was Open Data And Digital Governance. It went with a great questions and answers. This discussion actually cleared many of my doubts that how can we actually take open data to another level.
Which was followed by the other panel discussion Open Data And Digital Citizenship. After which we went for lunch break. After break it was a open house. Where many people came up with their work. One of them was by Guneet Narula who demonstrated akvo’s mobile water fluroide testing app.
Eagerly waiting for Open Data Camp 2016 :)
