We don't just want Data Mill North to be an open data repository, we want it to be part of the ever growing digital community in our region.  Whether it's innovation labs, hack days or lightening talks if it's going on we'll promote it here.  So, if you're arranging anything, get in touch and we'd only be too happy to help promote it!

Date: 24/02/2017 - 25/02/2017

Venue: ODI Leeds, 3rd Floor, Munro House, Leeds, LS9 8AG

Welcome to #AirHack, our 2-day event working with Defra to explore air quality – the problems, the data, the solutions.
We’re looking for anyone and everyone insterested in air quality – data scientist, programmer, technologist, maker, story-teller, activist, analyst, policy maker, etc. Maybe you’ve been using any of the commercial air sensors (or DIY solution) and want to talk about your findings, or maybe you work in health and want to see how Defra data could be used in future health planning, or maybe you have ideas about reducing air pollution.

Stockport hackathon 2017

Date: 04/03/2017

Venue: Fred Perry House, Edward Street, Stockport, SK1 3UR

Stockport Council has trawled the web to find out what people think about Stockport including comments, the things they like, complaints, and enquiries. We also have collated data from citizens with questions such as ‘What do you care about most in Stockport?’ and ‘What image comes to mind when you think of Stockport?’. This combined with our anonymised and aggregated contact centre data means that we have the data regarding what people in or visiting Stockport care about the most.
