On International Open Data Day, Datameet hosted an Open Data Hackathon powered by Collab House. 

Datameet is a community of Data Enthusiasts.

The one-day hackathon focused on generating more open data and using it for solving problems. Government of Telangana, has come up with an Open Data Policy in Sept 2015 and is promoting open data in Telangana.  

The hackathon took off by first considering the Agricultural data of the state and covered a lot of other segments. The crowd was focused and everyone shared their knowledge and ideas to use the data for the greater good.

By the end of the day, a good amount of data was analysed and plans were made so as to how this data can help and what can be done about it.

Data is surplus, we just have to use it to efficiently, and meets like this shall educate people to do so.
