I’m not at OKFest. How can I help?
The #FlashHacks campaign was launched online on 8th July and since then, many coders have released data by writing bots from homes, offices and cafes around the world. You can join in too! All you have to do is go to missions.opencorporates.com and sign up to a mission!
I can’t code but want to be part of #FlashHacks.
We hear you! You can still be involved in #FlashHacks by finding and suggesting datasets. If you’re an NGO, researcher or concerned citizen and there is a dataset you think should exist as open data – then suggest it as a mission! It might be liberated in the next 4 days.
