Environmental Reporting BC has published code in GitHub. We are a pathfinder project in the BCDevExchange, an experiment led by the Province of B.C. intended to create space for collaboration and innovation between tech entrepreneurs and British Columbia’s public sector.
Data matters and we want to share our stories about open data. Hear from us and share your insights and recommendations. Connect with others who are using B.C. data. Read about their experiences and learn about upcoming events. Add your comments and become a part of the conversation.

The Province of British Columbia has joined GitHub as part of the BCDevExchange experiment. The Province has set up an organisation on GitHub where all of the Province’s open collaboration will be housed. If you don’t know it, no worries—GitHub is a social software coding service that lets people keep track of different versions of what they are making, typically software code. It supports comments, document management, and feature requests.
