Subject: Open Source Open Data Platform (OGPL) Welcome and Webinars today
and tomorrow

 

Hi all--

 

In the theme of open government data that we have been focused on in the
group, I wanted to invite you to participate or comment on a project that
I've been working on.

 

We've been working hard on the Open Government Platform (OGPL), an open
source capability for open data and open government around the world. This
has been an active collaboration with the National Infomatics Centre
<http://www.nic.in/>  of the Government of India and the US Government
Data.gov <http://www.data.gov/>  team. The decision to move to an open
source platform
<http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2011/12/05/datagov-goes-global>  has been
both challenging and rewarding.

As with any open source capability, the code is only as strong as the
community around it.  We are getting close to releasing the first complete
package of OGPL and would like to get your ideas, feedback, and commits
before we proceed. To help with this, we will be holding two information
webinars this week (Wednesday and Thursday, December 19 and 20, 2012), and
have updated the code and documentation on Github.

Please join in on one of the webinars that is convenient (times are
optimized for different areas of the world where our many developer
volunteers are).
