This first meetup will be about connecting and refreshing the conversations around CKAN! We are going to have a warm welcome from CKAN Project Co-Stewards Rufus Pollock and Steven De Costa. We will kicked off the meeting with an introduction to CKAN and we'll present you the new website redesign! Co-Steward Steven De Costa will share an update on the ways CKAN is being used by organisations to manage data assets, showcasing a number of portals by government, corporate and non-profit organisations.
Join us to learn about the architecture deployment for an enterprise CKAN portal, common data access patterns and data storage patterns.
We’re excited to welcome:
