Open Data training comes to the South West

ODI Devon, the local node of the Open Data Institute, is running a new half-day course to help you get to grips with open data. The course is aimed at anyone who wants to know how open data works, whether it’s just been added to your  job description or if you’d just like to know a bit more for a project.

The course covers:

  • what is ‘open data’ anyway?
  • where do I find open data for my project?
  • what can I do with it?
  • what tools can I use to get started?

By the end of this session you will be able to describe what makes open data open; you will know where to look for useful open datasets to use in your work or personal projects; and you will know how to use simple data presentation tools to share insights from the data.

The next course is at Exeter Central Library on Friday 27th November 2015.
