Pedro Sousa lives in Porto, Portugal and he currently works as a Systems Engineer at DevScope and is a Azure MVP. His main focus is Microsoft Azure and integration with on-premises networks, working from the copper wire to the service.
Many of Open Knowledge International’s projects are technical in nature. Its most prominent project, CKAN, is used by many of the world’s governments to host open catalogues of data that their countries possess.
CKAN is a tool for making open data websites. (Think of a content management system like WordPress – but for data, instead of pages and blog posts.) It helps you manage and publish collections of data. It is used by national and local governments, research institutions, and other organizations who collect a lot of data.

In this talk I’ll go over some use-cases of Open Knowledge Platform implementations by the Portuguese Government, the architectural features, the difficulties and different approaches to solve them.
