Open Data Day 2013 - Saturday 23rd Feb

posted Feb 18, 2013, 2:01 AM by Nicola Hogg

Open Data Day events are happening all over the world on International Open Data Day, but Edinburgh University will be hosting one that's a wee bit different! The organisers would love to hear from non-technical people as well as developers, particularly if you represent a grassroots organisation and want to have a say in the future of services that are created to help you. After all, they'll be more useful if you tell the developers what your problems are.

The event is free and organised in conjunction with the Open Knowledge Foundation. It will include several presentations, followed by group discussions, impromptu lightning talks and end with networking. For further details on the event including the full line up & registraton, visit here.

If you're not sure what Open Data is, or how it works, or how it could benefit you or your organisation, but you'd like to find out, then they would love to have you.
