When the bright minds and positive energy of the Drupal community come together for four days of talks, trainings, and sprints, we want to be there! CivicActions is proud to sponsor and participate in BADCamp in Berkeley, California, October 18 – 21.
We look forward to connecting with friends old and new, while exploring the future of how organizations can use open source software to make a better world.
DKAN Open Data
One of the most exciting projects we’ll be discussing at BADCamp is DKAN, a Drupal distribution for publishing datasets and promoting open data standards.
On October 20 at 4:45 p.m., CivicActions will lead a panel discussion on how DKAN can increase collaboration, transparency, and open research in the scientific government community: “How the DKAN Open Data Platform Empowers Scientists.”

Another session by Annai will examine the international use of DKAN in “How Drupal Is Helping Japan’s Government Embrace Open Data.”
We hope you can join us to celebrate the possibilities and achievements of open source software and open data at BADCamp.
