  • Part 1 - Status (Noël Van Herreweghe) 2013 has arguably been a really good year for open data at the Flemish government in Belgium, paving the way for even bigger achievements in 2014. Noël Van Herreweghe, the program manager for Open Data, will give us a status, what is still to be done, and the challenges facing this administration.
  • Part 2: Technical (Yves Vanderbeken) In the second part of this session, Yves Vanderbeken will zoom in on the technical realizations of the Flemish Government to date. He will present an overview of the platform of the Flemish Government, but also focus on the technical architecture and Best Practice scenarios that are being developed to make sure data is correctly extracted, transformed and published on the platform.
