An Open Knowledge Foundation Site

We like to meet!

There are three types of events listed here:

  • regular meetups we organise every 3 weeks (or more frequently!) to get the community together, keep the conversations going, and cover topics of general interest;
  • full-day events: a hackothon or conference to push the envelope, get knee-deep and drive enthusiasm for open data
  • open data-related events in Hong Kong: we’ll showcase such events here.

Add your event

  • Leave the details at the bottom of this page or email the details to: info@opendatahk.com
  • Create a Google Calendar event and send an invite to dougbastien@gmail.com
