Open Data Hack Day 2012
A free two day event providing a unique opportunity to discover the potential of publishing and using open data.
25-26 October 2012, The Open Data Institute, London, UK
A year on from the previous DevCSI Open Data event, what has changed… quite a lot as it turns out! With an increasing number of datasets available and even the premiership football champions joining the party, we ask what new opportunities there are and what has been learnt?
This hackday will kick of with a number of thought provoking talks and demonstrations that will set the tone for further discussion and debate. Time will be provided for breakout groups to discuss and develop turn key solutions to identified problems and opportunities.
Whether you are just getting involved in open data, or are already knee deep, this event will provide a unique opportunity to discover the potential of publishing and using open data.
