Saving the World with JSON Schema!

Tuesday, June 12, 2018
View on Meetupreply

This month’s speaker is Rob from opendataservices.coop, a tech cooperative which helps people and organisations publish and use open data in a variety of fields from international development, government procurement, to philanthropy.

The goal is to help organisations have an impact on the world - to make taxes go further, to stop corruption, increase the effectiveness of aid, and to help make sure that charity money goes where it’s needed most.

Underpinning all of this JSON Schema (and some XML Schema, if you dig around the back of the closet).

In this talk we’ll hear from Rob about how cooperatives are awesome, what open data is, and why it’s such a good thing. We will see some examples of where standardised open data has improved lives, and learn about the open data of Nottingham.
