Introduction

Hi, I am Ian, one of the hosts of the Aberdeen Data Meet-up.

Why you are interested in joining this group?

I am a co-founder of Code The City, where we run civic hacking events using open data and open source. We recently launched the first Scottish Node of the Open Data Institute (ODI Aberdeen). Formerly I was the lead for the Open Data programme for the 7 Cities of Scotland. I was part of the group who authored the Scottish Government's Open Data Strategy 2015.

Do you Work / Study in Data or Technology?

I am midway through an MSc in Data Science at RGU (having escaped local government in summer 2017. I founded Data Enabled Limited in 2017.
