To be archived

This was a good way to organise the site when there were more open data events and our strategy involved prioritising information about those events. Now we have fewer events, and our strategy has shifted, it no longer makes sense to have a specific page on the website dedicated to this information.

We will archive this page on 16 April, 2021. We will describe all future events in blog posts.

If you know of any reason why we should not do this, email

Our last Wellington open data meetup of 2018!

at Bin 44, 3 Queens Wharf, Wellington.
It’s approaching That Time of The Year and we thought it would be great to have an open data meetup before everyone disperses for the holidays. It’ll be an opportunity for you to catch up, swap stories and start plotting making plans for 2019.
