What Are Your 2017 Goals? Get Fresh Ideas at Socrata Connect
What does your data program need to succeed to 2017? New skills, a stronger community, one-on-one time with technology experts, or inspiration from your peers? You’ll find all of this and more at Socrata Connect from March 6-8, 2017, just outside of Washington, DC at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center.
This year’s programming will help you leverage data to improve performance and enhance public service. From the latest transportation trends, to how to measure the results of new drug policies, to ways to overcome current county-level challenges, Socrata Connect will explore what’s next in data sharing technology and how governments can lead with data.
On the Main Stage
We’ll hear from innovators like Daniel Doctoroff, CEO of Sidewalk Labs, on urban innovation, and Jonathan Schwabish on the influence of data visualization and presentation design. Progressive government leaders like Lilian Coral, Chief Data Officer for the city of Los Angeles, will guide a conversation on how to transform legacy systems into services that deliver results.
Inspiration and ideas are important, but there’s no substitute for gaining practical know-how to take action and implement new concepts. That’s why Connect participants will have the opportunity to stop by Data Camp for hands-on workshop sessions to get valuable training on topics like designing effective performance management roadmaps, how to load data files using Safe FME, and meaningful metadata. Since the Data Camp agenda is flexible, it’s also a great opportunity to break into small groups, network with peers, and get answers to tough questions.
Socrata Connect is a chance to find your tribe, get inspired, and sharpen your skills to start 2017 off right.
