The Open Data Institute is organizing multiple workshops (May 12-16, July 21-25 | London, UK) to introduce the technical, commercial and legal aspects of open data. The courses aim to highlight key opportunities for working with open data and how these can be exploited across government, business and society.
The workshops are designed to enable anyone to understand how to publish, consume and exploit open data as well as give an understanding of best practice, law, licensing and policy issues.
Central to these efforts is for participants to gain hands-on experience through the week. This will culminate in a day of making, giving attendees time and support in applying learning to their own work to help ensure new skills are fully transferable.
