The International Open Data Day is on Saturday, March 5, 2016 and for those of you in Abuja, Connected Development [CODE] will be having 2 simultaneous events on the day:
1. Master Class on Spreadsheets (Excel, Google etc)
With feed backs from the Open Data Party held in Benin City last year, we will be having a 2 hours session on analyzing data using Microsoft Excel at CODE, Bassan Plaza, F Wing, 2nd Floor, Central Area District, Abuja, FCT
You can apply to join in at on Thursday, March 4, 2016, 10 am – 12 noon  (All confirmed participants will be sent a final invitation to the event)
2. Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME) Funds Data Sprint
In recent times, the Nigerian government and other international partners have provided funding for the growth of MSMEs in the country, but most of this funds cannot be accessed by prospective MSMEs. We will be collecting all data on date, name, donor organization (government and others) and recipients (States, etc) during this data sprint that will be coordinated via Skype all day. We will be creating an MSME Funds Tracker out of this event.
You can register to join in from your online space at and if you have limited internet, CODE office will be open + drinks 😉
There is an hashtag for both event – #oddabuja feel free to use and reuse!
See you all on the other side, and have a great week ahead
