Open Data Hack Day
7 Keble Road
Data is an increasingly important part of research and using this hack day is aimed to encourage new applications or datasets to be created and show how open data can be useful to help the work of researchers through having the data made available.
The Oxford e-Research Centre and the Oxford Open Science group are running a hack day on Open Data Day (http://opendataday.org), Saturday, 22 February 2014.
Open Data Day is an annual worldwide gathering of citizens to write applications, liberate data, create visualizations and publish analyses using open public data.
About the day
The event is open to developers, designers, data wranglers, and librarians. As it is an informal event, there is no format to the day, people will gather at the beginning of the day to work out what projects we will work on, and to discover what skills and data are available before letting everyone power on. At the end of the event we will come together and share our work, successful or not.
Lunch is provided, and kindly sponsored by White October. 'Creating websites and mobile apps'
The event is free but registration is required.
