Interested in #RHoK + #opendata?

**The following post is from [Jonathan Gray](, Community Coordinator at the [Open Knowledge Foundation](**

This weekend developers all over the world will get together for [a series of events]( as part of [Random Hacks of Kindness](, which aim to use “**practical open technology to make the world a better place**”. We imagine that many of the things that people will work on will build on **open datasets from public bodies**.

As Random Hacks of Kindness finishes on the evening of the 5th June, we thought we’d remind people that the [Open Data Challenge]( also finishes on **midnight on the 5th June** (i.e. between 5th and 6th June). There are **€20k worth of prizes for apps, ideas, datasets and visualisations**. Any #RHoK developers based in Europe are eligible to enter!


If you’re not a developer, or don’t have time to build anything – you might nevertheless be interested in [submitting an idea]( to the competition.

Also if you’re looking for open data to use as part of RHoK, you might be interested in having a look on [](, []( and on [CKAN]( If you get or clean up any datasets and want to share them – please do consider [adding them on CKAN]( so others can find and build on your efforts!
