Intro to CKAN

4 Mar 2017, 12:27 p.m.

In February 2015 I gave a Liiptalk to my colleagues, introducing the open data portal platform CKAN.

CKAN is the software we at Liip used to build, Open Data Z├╝rich and the Open Research Data Platform Switzerland. It's written in Python (based on Pylons but currently being migrated to Flask). CKAN is open source, of course, extensible, has a great community and is a pleasure to work with, and I wanted to share that with my coworkers, who mostly program in PHP.

This talk is now a couple of years old so technical details may be outdated, but I hope it still conveys my enthusiasm for Open Data and for CKAN.

Here's the video and my slides.
