CKAN is the world leading open source data portal management platform. The workshop will focus on the following aspects.
Introduction to CKAN: what it is and what it is not! With what feature set has CKAN become a worldwide standard for open data portals? (talk)
Support: what is available in terms of training, deployments or support days to help people deploy, customise and extend CKAN. Will include Q&A / troubleshooting.
Building apps / extensions off CKAN: Using the catalog API and the data API – we will be provide a practical showcase of how to adapt themes, create a custom preview, modify the authorisation setup and more. Will include examples of how to use the API for data mashups. (Practical workshop)
CKAN project: how to get involved in this open source project, contributing, mailing lists, roadmap and governance. (Talk + discussion)

At the Open Knowledge Festival in 2012, the Open Knowledge Foundation’s working group published the Open Transport Data Manifest together with the EPSI platform. Taking these statements as a start, it should now be possible to extend the manifest with the next step(s) needed in order to make all transport modes interoperable.

At this open workshop we will present emerging findings from a major new study on digital social innovation (DSI) in Europe. The research is commissioned by the European Commission, DG Connect and run by Nesta, in partnership with the Waag Society, ESADE, IRI and Future Everything. The study looks at grassroots civic innovations that use mass collaboration to tackle societal challenges.
At the same time that we have big global challenges we are also able to harness collective intelligence via ICT to solve global-scale problems so that citizens can develop awareness and map actions in real time.
The DSI research is identifying examples of Digital Social Innovations (DSI) that are exploiting the network effect of the Internet and merging technology trends such as open data crowdmapping, open hardware, and open distributed networking to bring people together to solve social challenges.
A brilliant example of DSI is Safecast, the crowd-led global sensor network for collecting and sharing radiation measurement that was created following the nuclear catastrophe at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in March 2011. To date volunteers have mapped radiation levels of more than 3 million data points, providing an accurate real-time data streams that was inconceivable before the Safecast project.
We will share with you what we have learned to date about the actors that enable and support digital social innovations. We want your input and challenges to inform our thinking and to influence our recommendations to the EC on how to foster emerging digital social innovation research and policy across Europe.

Recorded on Tuesday 17 September, 11.30 – 13.15 @ Room 6, Floor 3
Hosts: city of Amsterdam, Economic Department
Code for Europe (CfE) is a prestigious Open Innovation EU project (2011-1014), a collaboration between 6 cities (Helsinki, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Manchester and Rome) to promote the city app development through commons and working with Change Agents fellows across Europe. Amsterdam (city of Amsterdam), ESADE Barcelona and the Waag are responsible to set up a sustainable organization like the CfE. In this way we promote Open Data use, transparency and we bring cutting edge technology and talent to city governance.
Core question – How to cause tech acceleration within cities? How to leverage on the power of commons /GitHub app building?
11.30 -12.15 – Showcasing what Code for Europe means in different cities and the results produces by our fellows
* Introduction: General Frame , Goals, Setting of CfE – City of Amsterdam (11.30-11.40)
* Quick demos of Apps (1 from each city, 6 pitches) (11.40-12.20)
* Reflection on the first Fellowship (from Cities about the implementation, working with pitches, city challenges) (Anne-Claire Frank) (12.20-12.30)
* Call for new fellows and cities (Suzanne WAAG) (12.30-12.40)
* CCity Innovation Models through Commons (how familiar are cities with this and how can we foster the growth of civic apps through Commons) (NESTA) (12.40-12.55)
* Make a better World through apps (Steffen Becker, Dotopen) (12.55-13.10)
* Conclusions (13.10-13.15)
12.15 – 13.15 – Panel Discussion – Reflecting on the future of Code for Europe as an organization through Europe
* Launch of Code for Europe : how can we enforce this movement in Europe? – WAAG
* City Innovation Models through Commons (how familiar are cities with this and how can we foster the growth of civic apps through Commons) With Civic Commons, Nesta, ESADE, and city representatives
