OpenBlock: Overview & Initial Experience

A session at DjangoCon US 2012

Tuesday 4th September, 2012

2:20pm to 3:00pm (EST)

OpenBlock is an open-source project aiming to provide a framework for "hyper-local" civic data. We've been using OpenBlock in a project focused on increasing access to public records in rural North Carolina communities. In this talk we provide an overview of OpenBlock and how to get started using it, we describe our experience using it, and discuss some extensions we have made to it.
