We’re hearing that many of you had a great time at NYC’s School of Data! We did to and want some feedback from you.

Here are some event stats:

  • We featured 18 sessions, 40 presenters, 22 are women, 16 came from NYC Government, & three are elected officials.
  • 372 tickets; checked in 260+ people; 11 children under 10 y.o. attended the event.
  • 49 people offered to volunteer. 30 labored.
  • Eight NYC High Schoolers learned to navigate NYC’s open data portal, manipulate NYC’s 311 data, & map this data into CartoDB.
  • One family attended and represented three generations: Grandma—organizer and data visualizer, Father—data advocate, & Daughter—aspiring civic hacker. :wink:
  • Our event leadership team consisted of seven volunteers, three are women & five are people of color.
  • For a third of the day, our hashtag was a trending topic on Twitter — #nycSoData.
  • Our main stage conversations are up on youtube.
  • You can download presenters slides from our Organizer’s recap.
