Earlier this month I was kindly invited to talk at Hack de Overheid, a very well-organized hackathon in Amsterdam for building apps around open data sets.
There were 20-odd governmental organizations and civic institutions pitching their datasets. The content ranged from cultural data from museums and archives to open API calls from the fire department.
You even receive a coveted coffee cup when you release a dataset, based on the five-star Linked Data scheme by Tim Berners-Lee.
I enjoyed making these slides because:
- I learned to hack together a new webmaker theme
- It uses Popcorn.js to drive the slide transitions (thanks, Ben!)
- It’s very easy and fun to change the images in HTML slides.
Please feel free to download, reuse and remix the files!
