This month we're having a super-mega-meetup with OxRUG (http://oxrug.org/) and the Oxford Python Meetup Group (http://www.meetup.com/oxfordpython/) to look at open data and how we can leverage and contribute to global datasets. Open data is great in theory, but how can we go about actually using it, and what are the practical implications? Hopefully we'll find out!
Practical Open and Linked Data - Leigh Dodds (https://twitter.com/ldodds)
Leigh Dodds from the Open Data Institute will talk us through real-world open and linked data.
After the talks we'll host a discussion on the practicalities of open data, so bring along stories of success, failure, glory and pain!
As always, we've got some time for micro-pitches before we break out for drinks and discussion, so if you've got a job, project or interesting thing to share with the group that's your chance.
