CTC24 – Open in Practice
November 27 - November 28
We’re back with our 24th Hack Weekend. This time our focus is on putting the theories of Open into practice.
The theory of being open is great but what does it mean in practice to work openly, to make data, images, information and code open for others to re-use? And how could that benefit your organisation – or you as an individual?
At this hack event we will explore by practicing how we be more open and support some of the key concepts that Code The City was set up to champion.
We’ll have a number of challenges (which we will list further down this page and expand on as we get nearer the event). These will trigger prototype projects which we will work on in small teams throughout the weekend. These projects will explore
- Open Data – creation, curation, finding, improving; data scraping; using the data to build new products and services.
- Open Licensing – taking and sharing images with open licences
- Open Working – sharing our code on Github for re-use under permissive licences.
