Simplon & The Sponge are organizing the International Open Data Day Hackathon in Cluj. This event is a 48h gathering of people in Cluj who want to write applications, liberate data, create visualizations and publish analyses using open public data to show support for and encourage the adoption open data policies by the world's local, regional and national governments.


You can hack anything involving open data. Could be a local or global app, a visualization, proposing a standard for common data sets, scraping data from a government website to make it available for others or even creating your own data catalog of government data.



If you have an idea for using open data, want to find an interesting project to contribute towards, learn about how to visualize or analyze data or simply want to see what's happening, then definitely come participate! No matter your skillset or interests, we are encouraging organizers to foster opportunities for you to learn and help the global open data community grow.


Who can come? Developers, designers, librarians, people who love statistics, curious and creative people.
