Title: Open Data Manchester
Description: Open Data in Manchester
Start Time: 18:30
End Time: 20:30
This month we’ll be hearing from Bill Roberts.
Bill (from local company, Swirrl) is a member of two recently set up government groups related to open data: the Data Strategy Board and the UK Government Linked Data Working Group. He will explain what these organisations are meant to do and how they hope to improve the UK open data landscape – and how OpenDataManchester members and others can make their opinions and requests heard.
There will also be an announcement about the MCC Hackathon, and there will be the usual opportunity for general news and discussion, and the chance for people to show off what they’re working on.
We’ll start at 6:30 in MadLab, then we’ll probably head to Common-Bar across the street afterwards for a drink.
