Another great night at GeekUp Nottingham last night. Second one I’ve attended, first one I’ve seen through to the end.
A great session on Open Data with Nottingham City Council. Appropriately open in their discussion with the developer community as to the best way to progress. An interesting project to extend their data past the already superb Nottingham Insight project. Follow @nottsopendata for more updates. It’s inspired me to take another look at CartoDB which is a great mapping playground with some amazing recent projects on their blog.
Interesting retrospective on the running of GeekUp Nottingham. It sounds as though its struggling with usual Nottingham meetup problem – “where the hell is everyone!”
Great night, great community, great future. If you’re a Nottingham techie you should be part of it!
