What do you get when you blend open data, open source, and challenges created by a community and government partnership? The answer: Sustainable civic tech.

In this session, the audience will learn how the Open Raleigh Brigade partnered with our county IT innovation team to identify challenges based on community goals, set by our county commissioners. Then we'll explore how our planning team prepared open data in data.world for our event series. Finally, the audience will learn more about the open data competition and we'll explore the impact of open data and how it's having a positive impact in our community.
Session participants will learn:
* the value of open data in civic tech
* the importance of creating community-focused challenges
* how events can complement and advance community projects
* how community and government partnerships can help create sustainable civic tech
