We're pleased to announce our next London Open Data Meetup which will be happening on the 5th March!
This meetup is part of our ongoing, participatory series in London that gives folks working in a variety of fields (including academia, science, hardware, design, programming, media, government, development and culture) the opportunity to engage with a diverse network of locals interested in open data and open knowledge.
This month, we'll meet over drinks at the Centre for Creative Collaboration to hear updates, share initiatives and meet new people.
The evening We have a few short lightning talks planned including (please get get in touch if you’d like to contribute a short talk):
- Paul Maltby, Director of Open Data and Government Transparency, UK Cabinet Office on recent developments with Government Open Data (tbc)
- Tim Hubbard, Head of Department of Medical & Molecular Genetics King's College London, on Genome data in 2014 - more than a decade of Open Data!
