DFW Open Data Day is a 100% community organized event by TechMill, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit focused on building community through networking, events, and education.

Since the founding of TechMill, we have had a long history of creating and supporting tech and smart city initiatives in our home city of Denton. Whether it was open data, government transparency, or civic engagement - we've always had a soft spot for civic technology.

We want everyone to have a great time, become more aware of the smart city initiatives around North Texas, and provide the organizations with projects with validation or prototype of their innovative ideas.
