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.
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.
If you want to talk about CKAN development, please come and say hi on the ckan-dev mailing list or the #ckan IRC channel on irc.freenode.org. If you have service inquiries, you can reach out to the team: services at ckan dot org
