From July 10-12, the World Bank hosted the second International Open Government Data Conference (IOGDC) in Washington D.C. The event, co-organized by Data.gov, the World Bank Open Data Initiative and the Open Development Technology Alliance, convened innovators, policy makers, technologists, NGOs, and private sector organizations to talk about challenges and opportunities related to putting open data to work.
