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!

Utilising a technology called LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) devices can be created inexpensively with massive range and low power consumption. This makes it ideal for the creation of sensors and devices that can be left in remote locations. This workshop is a practical demonstration that will take people through the process of building simple devices that can be connected to the Things Network.
Venue: Hebden Bridge Town Hall
Saint George's Street
Things Happening on 4 September is a one day symposium that will explore the potential of Long Range Wide Area Networks. From building the underlying infrastructure to deployment of sensors and devices, it is an opportunity to see what is being developed, and learn from the people who are doing it.

So what is all this hype about the Internet of Things? Is it really the next phase of the Internet, will it really transform our lives, is it really worth £322 billion to the UK Economy by 2020?
For the more seasoned of us, are we at the peak of IoT gimmicky products and hype? Has the bubble now burst and will application after application become viable and then valuable? Join us on the 27th July for a joint IX Liverpool and Sensor City event, presented by Prof. Matt Wilson from Telecoms Cloud and you’ll discover how the Internet of Things could affect society, the workplace and your home, and learn what (if any) opportunities could arise out of it.
Leeds City Council is constantly working with partners to identify opportunities for the Council and the City.
This has recently included a number of opportunities relating to the development, funding and creation of solar energy generation assets.
The objective of this workshop is to use the framework of SmartKlub Leeds and co-produce an outline delivery plan for solar energy Projects across its and the wider public sector estate.
The specific aims of the workshop are to explore the opportunities, business & funding models for solar energy at scale in Leeds, and understand the delivery & business models that The Council and Partners could issue to deploy solar energy at scale across the City.
