Open Data Manchester is a meetup for all people who are interested in making data open for the benefit of citizens, businesses and public bodies alike.
The meetings are mix of presentation, conversation and sharing of tips, hacks and data. The event is an open forum and free.
It's 2013 and hopefully everyone is rested after the Christmas break. 2013 looks like it is going to be an interesting year as far as open data in Manchester is concerned with a number of initiatives including the FutureEverything Summit of Ideas and Digital Invention - happening in March.
Topics to be covered will include 'The Business of Open Data' workshop happening on the 19th and 20th March and more significantly Routes to the Future - Transport Innovation Challenge for Greater Manchester happening 22nd -24th March. Will there at last be a release of realtime data from TfGM? - All will be revealed on Tuesday.
If you have anything that you want to discuss, showcase or point out - just let us know.
