Event Details

 #opendata teacamp with Digital Economy Labs


How to get there - the postcode brings you to the wrong place

*The postcode SW7 2AZ on online maps brings you to the wrong place, so:

  • Go to South Kensington Tube, Imperial College exit
  • Come out of tube and turn left onto Exhibition Road
  • Turn immediately left onto Imperial College Road
  • Walk about 200m to Queen's Lawn on the right hand side of the road
  • There is a beautiful old tower in the middle of Queen's Lawn you can't miss it
  • The Sherfield building is diagonally opposite you on the corner of Queen's Lawn.
  • Go into the building, go immediately right into to the Queen's Tower Room
  • And you will find opendata teacamp and a nice cup of tea

Teacamps are informal gatherings for digital people who work in and around government and also outside of government .  They are usually two hours long including a slot for a speaker and chatting over a cup of tea, hence the name ‘teacamp’.

The original teacamp was started in February 2008 in London by @JeremyGould who also started the first UK GovCamp in January 2008.  The original teacamp is still going strong, regional teacamps sprung up, and in 2011 specialist London teacamps were set up, Agile Tea, Tea Cloud and Iceteacamp.

Teacamp covers all areas of digital / technology and is on the first Thursday of every month, 4pm – 6pm at 2nd floor House of Fraser, 101 Victoria St London SW1E 6QX. You don’t have to book, you can just turn up on the day.
