Open Data Manchester – October Edition

Hackers, activists, artists, journalists and public sector employees unite once again for Manchester’s regular open data meetup.

We’ll be down at Madlab on the last Tuesday of the month (29/10/13) for another delicious dose of open data goodness.

You can find calendar links and a map etc on the Eventbrite listing.

As ever, we will be delighted to hear about any projects you’d like to share or to discuss any questions you’d like to pose.

Afsniti is a yearly Innovation Competition that takes place at the end of November in Hørsholm Hospital. If you are a creative entrepreneur, artist or innovator or have a really good idea they would like to hear from you. There is a top prize of 100,000 DKR and if you are one of the 20-24 projects chosen you will be invited over to Denmark to take part in the Afsnit I Camp and Festival. Accommodation and food is provided with the possibility of support for travel too.
