This months edition of Open Data Manchester finds us located in tech Hub Manchester’s new space on Lever Street.

A lot has been happening over the last couple of months in the field of open data and there will be plenty of discussion around a few initiatives and competitions that have recently been launched.

Open Data Manchester’s Berlin representative will talk about ways of making data ready for release and there will be plenty of opportunity to share ideas and discuss projects.

For all of those that attended the Open Data Manchester/FutureEverything GMDSP Data Dive in March, there will be a chance to see some of the great applications and ideas that were created from the released linked data. We also hope to announce a fantastic Open Linked Data training course that will be run as part of GMDSP.

Light Raider
Light Raider – An application that uses locations of street furniture to create motivation to exercise.

Lights Off
Lights Out – Switch off Manchester’s street lights and see how much you can save.

We are also planning on going through the latest Open Data Challenge call from the Open Data Institute with a potential package of £40,000 support.

As always the event is free, so see you there.
