OpenDataSoft is happy to announce it is offering all students in the Wake Technical Community College Analytics department a free open data portal to help them build hands-on data sharing and analytics skills.
Wake Tech is the first and only college in the country to offer an Associate in Applied Science degree in Business Analytics, and OpenDataSoft applauds the college’s role in helping already degreed students make a positive career transition, and in using specially-adapted business analytics content to retrain unemployed and underemployed workers. The program is also a win-win for the community, helping Triangle companies gain a competitive edge by giving them access to a pool of well-trained specialists who can help them grow and manage their businesses.
The OpenDataSoft portal offered to Wake Tech Analytics students is the same one the company has made available at no cost to the civic tech volunteers in the Code for America Brigades. It features the full platform functionality of the commercial version and can be used to support an unlimited number of users, up to 20 datasets (100,000 records per dataset/max, 2 GB uncompressed raw data in total), and 10,000 API calls/day. (See http://bit.ly/1WyCwhE for more info on Brigade portals.)
We at OpenDataSoft are really looking forward to seeing the wonderful projects these students will develop using open data and their new open data portals!
