Open Data Day London 2016
Sat 5 March 2016, 11:00 – 19:00 GMT
Open Data Day is a gathering of citizens in cities around the world to write applications, liberate data, create visualizations and publish analyses using open public data to show support for and encourage the adoption of open data policies by the world's local, regional and national governments.
The event is open to all, curious citizens, journalists, tech-geeks, students, scientists, graphic designers. Come by on the day to learn, hack, wrangle and just plain hangout.
No specialist skills are needed - come along to learn and connect with other members of the community. You don't need to know anything about (open) data or technology in advance – enthusiasm and interest is all that is needed and you'll get support and advice from others!
Should I bring anything?
We recommend bringing a device that will allow you to access and browse the internet (via wifi - wifi will be provided). A laptop or tablet would be perfect.
If you plan to code, design or write quite bit of content we recommend bringing a laptop rather than just a tablet as it will be easier to write with.
Do I need specific skills to participate?
No - you don't need any special skills (technical, data or otherwise) to get involved. Interest and enthusiasm are recommended :-)
I'm a journalist, can I cover the event?
Yes, absolutely - there will be plenty of people to talk to. If you want to get in touch to arrange please ping us on the forum.
Open Data Day London is coordinated by volunteers from Newspeak House, Open Knowledge England and Open Knowledge Labs.
