Hackathons and Open Data have the potential to impact every field. They give people a chance to make changes that companies and even governments sometimes struggle with. They give people a chance to be engaged in ways that were once impossible.

Aashni will not only give you an introduction to this fantastic world, but will also feature a few demos on how these Open Data Hackathons are already changing society.

Q: What kind of volunteer opportunities are there at PodCamp Toronto?

PodCamp Toronto is entirely volunteer-driven! We always need enthusiastic volunteers in a range of areas: manning the registration desk, room hosting and greeting attendees at our traditional Saturday night social. Many previous volunteers have gotten more serious and joined our core organizing team! For more details, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Samuel at volunteers@podcamptoronto.com.
