School of Data

Program Description

NYC School of data is a community driven conference held annually in March that brings together New Yorkers around open data, civic technology, and service design. Since 2010, BetaNYC has organized an annual community conference. Sometimes it has been an “unconference” or a community hackathon and at other times, a one-day program of 30 conference sessions. Through the years, we have held space for NYC’s technology + government + civics to intersect.

At NYC School of Data, we see data as the cornerstone of the digital century. We cannot talk about society, government, nor technology without discussing the ramifications of how data is used to manage, maintain, surveil, or legislate. NYC School of Data empowers attendants to improve their lives and neighborhoods through workshops, panels, demos, and networking.
