The (preliminary) topics for this event are:
- Government vision for opening data;
- Presentation of national platform for open data;
- Legal aspects of open data;
- Presentation of Bulgarian open data portal;
- Europe and open data;
- Open, coordinated e-government for citizens and business;
- What has already been done by municipalities in Bulgaria;
- Strategy of Sofia municipality for open data;
- Upcoming open data programming contest organized by Sofia municipality.
I will also be participating in this event by covering two topics I'm close to:
- Entrepreneurship and open data - sharing my limited experience with Difio and processing open data;
- Technical tips for successful open data hackathon - sharing my observations as a mentor at HackFMI and giving some recommendations which will help the alleged open data contest make a difference not being just another dull event organized by governmental agencies.
I'm also in touch with the event organizers and helping a little bit with the program. If you're interested in speaking please get in touch with me ASAP.
