New patch releases for the supported CKAN versions
The latest bug and security fixes, ready for upgradeRead
We had a wonderful presentation on CKAN as part of our very first monthly community meetup from Steven De Costa, co-steward of the CKAN project and executive director at Link Digital. We kicked off the meeting with an introduction to CKAN, we talked about its website redesign, we touched upon what types of organizations use it and expanded on the use of data portals in corporate settings. We also explored the core CKAN feature set and its advantages as an extensible framework. Here is a taste of the features that were emphasized during the presentation:
Steven also dived deeper into the CKAN architecture, told us where and how its Python-based technology stack can be deployed and highlighted the flexibility it offers thanks to its support of multiple modern cloud platforms. Then, he went on giving a tour of how data is displayed in CKAN with examples of what outcomes some of its plugins can achieve, including the ability to fully support map integration. A clear explanation of the different storage patterns CKAN can use followed.
Here are some other agenda items from our meetup:
