Open data workshop

Not-for-profit organisations are invited to book onto a free Open Data workshop running at District Council House on Thursday 11 October 2018 from 2pm to 4pm.

From apps for homebuyers that bring together data on crime, education, transport and environment, through to maps that show where and when any road traffic accidents happened, open data is powering a more transparent world. It’s opening up historically ‘hidden’ data so that people can be more informed about their communities, where they live and their lives.

But what if you want to share your data? How do you know whether it’s ok to share it, when you should share it, and how do you go about doing it?

Data Brew helps not-for-profit organisations open up their data, and is hosting a free workshop in the council's Committee Room on 11 October, 2pm to 4pm.

In this workshop you will learn the basics of what open data is, how you can include it in your work and even get some hands on experience of using it. If you have no experience of open data and you are keen to get a grasp of it, we’ll guarantee you will walk away with a new understanding.

We’ll also take a look at examples of how it is being used, where to find it, and what kind of people are using it and discuss the availability of open data in your area.

If you are interested, we recommend that you book your place as soon as possible online as places are limited.

Book your free place.
