Updating open data standards

Frictionless Data is a progressive open-source framework for building data infrastructure. At the core of the project are the Frictionless Data Standards, a minimum viable set of lightweight and comprehensive standards to significantly improve the transport of data.

In September 2023, 5 years after their v1 release, we kickstarted the Frictionless standards update together with a working group, made of members of the community coming from different academic fields, aiming at a v2 release in mid-2024.

In this talk we will share our main takeaways from this Standards update journey, including (but not limited to):

  • What makes a standard successful
  • How to coordinate a major standard update
  • What are the key elements to take into account
