Open data and human development: Building a seamless Drupal-Socrata website experience

In 2013, the UNDP Human Development Report Office paired up with Socrata to rebuild its website in Drupal and create Socrata-powered country data pages. In this presentation, we look at the challenges of incorporating data and other components from the UNDP's Socrata Open Data portal into a contextual front-end experience built in Drupal, and go over some of the challenges we faced during the development process, such as performance and internationalization, and how we addressed them. The objective of this talk is to share our experience with participants and discuss how open data websites are being addressed by the Drupal community, particularly in a non-profit, international organization or government organization setting.

To be co-presented by Eleonore Fournier-Tombs and Chris Whong
