Data.gov.uk is proud to once again be partnering with WhereCampEU, this time bringing WhereCampUK to Nottingham on 19th & 20th November. If you're interested in popping along, you can signup here: http://wherecampuk.eventbrite.com/
What is WhereCampUK?
A free to attend, two day geo unconference in Nottingham on 19/20th November. A British version of WhereCampEU (ie slightly smaller, and with more tea).
What is WhereCampEU?
WhereCampEU is an unconference; it’s open to everyone and you drive the agenda and the sessions. March 2010 saw the first WhereCampEU take place in London, with 180 attendees over two days from diverse backgrounds, including public, commercial and third sectors. It’s what you make it, so come along, listen, contribute and speak. See some of WhereCampEU in action: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1442338@N21/pool/
Who Will Be There?
WhereCamp Europe is open to everyone; from über hacker to beginner, from geo-hobo to seasoned professional, from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0, and from mobile. If you have an interest in geography and how it’s changing the way in which we interact with the world then you should come along.
What Happened Last Time?
Sessions looked at the hype surrounding location check-ins, visualising geo data, community mapping, open data, crowdsourcing a whole host of data, and building apps and businesses.
