Registration is open for NYC School of Data 2022! 🎟 🥳 🎉

Charge your laptops or tablets, pack your water bottle, vaccination card, grab your quality mask, sharpen your pencils, and get a good night’s rest! Join us for NYC’s most informative civic tech + open data event of the year — NYC School of Data 2022 on Saturday, 5 March!

This year, we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the City’s transformative open data law, and kick off NYC Open Data Week with over 30 sessions!

NYC School of Data is community conference that brings together the City’s technology, data, and design communities. It is organized by BetaNYC, with programming support from the NYC Mayor’s Office of Data Analytics (MODA), and hosted by the Jacobs Urban Tech Hub at Cornell Tech.

From over 150 community suggested sessions, we are organizing 30+ thought provoking panels, workshops, office hours with NYC agencies, and demo/usability sessions to cover a wide variety of topics – digital and data literacy, privacy, smart cities, open government, service design, civic engagement, and open data.

Come learn and contribute to the next decade of technology, data, and policy — by us, for us!

There are a handful of student and scholarship tickets available. Also, we are looking for volunteers.
