The Open Data for Development Camp is over. On 12 and 13 May 2011 , the Open Data for Development Camp brought together a diverse crowd of development aid workers, policy-makers, researchers, journalists, IT staff, software developers in order to learn about the possibilities of Open Data in Development, share experiences, meet new partners, etc... 

Below is an overview of those two inspiring days.
