Data Horror Stories!
October 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm GMT
Toy Story 2’s production famously lost a couple of months’ work due to an accidental and erroneous command being executed.
In 1999, the Mars Orbiter Climate spacecraft crashed because engineers used computer software which produced output in non-SI units of pound-force seconds (lbf·s) instead of the SI units of newton-seconds
And virtually every day we hear of data that has been breached, lost or just collected badly.
Data Horror Stories is a night for sharing YOUR scary data-based tales among a group who share your pain.
We have a number of five-minute slots available, so if you have a story or cautionary tale that you’d like to share, drop an email to sam[at]opendatamanchester.org.uk.
There’ll also be some quick-fire slots on the night.
Join us for a night of data-based cautionary tales and share your stories and experiences.
6.00 – Doors, refreshments, etc.
