Data-Driven Government and the Ruby Developer

At GoGaRuCo (Golden Gate RubyConf) today in San Francisco, CA…

Talk by Eric Mill who works at Sunlight Labs and who is working with government to make their data public. Here are some examples of where you can get data.

Californa Data
Chicago Every Block
New York Data Mine
United States Data
Federal Register (launched a few months ago and “is amazing”)

GovPulse is the winner of the contest Sunlight Labs had recently. It’s a Ruby On Rails app running on Amazon EC2. It’s an open source app.

Government is beginning to serve developers and seeing them as one of their customers. Developers are beginning to give back to government.
