People! It's time for our first hack as a fully formed and funded CiC ( Summers of Data is a super relaxed 1-day hack on 4th July to celebrate our new Independence. (You saw what we did there.)

We have lots of local data in a beautiful data store (, free food/drink, cash prizes and a warm welcome for all.

We need:

• Developers

• Designers

• Artists & creative

• Data analysts

• Public sector staff

• Charity & community workers

Themes & Prizes

It's relaxed. The only rule this time around is that your project contains some local open data: Mash it with other data, visualise it, make an app or tell a data story with art - it's all up to you. Teams can win one (or more) of the following categories:

Best Story (£100)
Tell us something about where we live; a story that educates, inspires or just plain titillates, based on local data.

Best Community Solution (£100)
Awarded to the team that solves a local problem for our residents using open data.

People's Choice (£100)
Which team did you most admire? Awarded by popular vote of hack participants.

Best Overall Project (£200)
Awarded to the team judged to have made the best of the hack across any/all categories.

We'll be providing free lunch to all participants. There's also a plentiful supply of free tea and coffee and a small tipple will probably appear too.

Can't wait to see you what you make!
