Open House at ODI Leeds
Fri 28 April 2017, 09:00 – 16:30 BST
Friday 28 April
9am - 4:30pm
ODI Leeds, Munro House
As part of Leeds Digital Festival, ODI Leeds is playing host to a variety of events. What better way to finish off a packed week than with a casual Open House at ODI Leeds.
Come from 9am to enjoy free coworking in the morning until we set up for a unique Lunchtime Lecture - for the first time, it will be streamed from Leeds to London and beyond! We are still confirming who the speaker(s) will be but it is guranteed to be about open data and technology from a Leeds-based speaker.
After the Lunchtime Lecture, from 2pm onwards, we will have a Data Drop In, where people can literally pop in for a quick chat about open data - questions, licensing, new datasets from Data Mill North, etc.
We've also teamed up with Democracy Club to help with their 'democracy quests' in time for the elections in May - bring your laptop and we'll provide a powered desk, free wifi, drinks and sweet things for energy, and a nice friendly atmosphere. The current quests include converting PDFs into useful data formats, finding twitter accounts for candidates, helping write a 'getting started' guide for Democracy Club, plus many more. Through various projects and iniatives, Democracy Club aim to make democracy better and more open for everyone.
Tea/Coffee will be available throughout the day, with cake at the Data Drop-In from 2pm. It is a very relaxed day where you can come and enjoy the space, see the ODI Leeds team at work, and stay to ask questions about open data.
==Munro House is wheelchair-friendly - lift from street-level entrance to lobby, then left to all floors, disabled toilets on 2nd and 3rd floors==
We have a Code of Conduct - we want everyone to feel safe and welcome at our events.
