Meet the Open Data team! We’re putting on an open day for all members of the university to come and discover what we do and how open data can help. We’ve booked the Access Grid Room and the Coffee Room in Building 32 (EEE) and will be running a series of talks, workshops and general ‘get to know us’ sessions throughout the day.

Currently confirmed:

Talks from members of the University community on how open data has helped them.
Tutorials from the Open Data Service – how to help us to help you.
Demos of some of the cool stuff we’ve done and sneak peeks of what we’re currently working on.
Hacking sessions for technical people who want to get their hands dirty.
Free food and coffee, sponsored by the Digital Economy USRG!

This is a free event, and will be running across the entire day, please feel free to drop in even if you can only spare 10 minutes.

NOTE: If you have any data, no matter how trivial it may seem, please bring it along! We can read most types of database, spreadsheets and documents, and will have hackers on hand all day who will endeavor to make it into something that benefits you, and the wider university community.
