Take a CKAN Tour

May 1, 2014 in CKAN, Events, OKF Projects

From baby name datasets and apps via the South Australian government to new City of Surrey, B.C., (Canada) site, there are many instances of CKAN around the world. CKAN is the data management system that makes data accessible – by providing tools to streamline publishing, sharing, finding and using data. It is used by various levels of governments, civil societies and organization to make their data transparent and available.

In this 1-hour video hangout Irina Bolychevsky, Services Director gives us an overview of CKAN with live demo’s of several CKAN sites including data.gov.uk, publicdata.eu and data.glasgow.gov.uk. She also answered community questions.

Get Involved

CKAN has a wide community of contributors working to remix and extend the software. Two examples of code that folks have contributed includes Ckanext-spatial and ckanext-realtime (github links).

The CKAN core committers host regular online developer meetings. These are every Tuesday and Thursday 13:00 – 14: 00 EDT reviewing pull requests and discussing architecture. We meet up on ckan developer mailing list, being on the #ckan irc channel in freenode (to the the google hangout link for meetings!) and commenting on github tickets. All welcome.

Community questions tend to be asked on StackOverflow using the CKAN tag on Stack Overflow. You can also file issues/contribute code on github.
