Event description

Description

Civic Tech Toronto presents a hackathon for Open Data Day 2017. On March 4 join us to:

  • Meet designers, coders, urban planners, government staff, mappers, policymakers, students, communications strategists, and others who share an interest in making Toronto more responsive, prosperous, sustainable and equitable, through tech and design. (Coders are welcome, but you don't have to be a coder to contribute!)

  • Collaborate on civic tech challenges, presented by organizations and community groups.

  • Learn about the importance of open data and open government.

  • Build relationships, make cool stuff, have fun and learn from each other!

This event has a Code of Conduct and Anti-harassment Policy.

Questions? hi@civictech.ca.



Challenges

Challenges come from government, nonprofit organizations, and community groups. Challenges are subject to change; we expect to have about 8 for participants to choose from.

  • The Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD) has lots of employment and education data and needs your help to reimagine it for public use! MAESD wants to create a tool that helps students better understand the educational pathway options available and the skills needed to meet labour market demand.

  • The City of Toronto’s Transportation Big Data Innovation Team is looking for an interactive dashboard to tell the story of traffic speeds in Toronto. We’re providing access to historical and real-time traffic speeds on City-controlled highways and some major streets in the downtown core. You can combine this with open data that can help explain variations in traffic speeds such as weather or special events.

  • The Landlord and Tenant Board of Ontario is looking for a simple, easy to navigate platform that allows the parties (the landlord or tenant) to communicate with each other, to upload documents or share materials needed in the file, and to allow for mediator-supported resolution through the tool.

  • Help the Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services (MCYS) create a data-dashboard of youth wellbeing! To be truly effective, this data dashboard must bring together key datasets including the Youth Crime Rate and Youth Unemployment Rate with a customized look and feel.
