Everyone with an interest in designing their own games and apps is invited to come along to the University of York’s first ever “Data Dive”!
Run in collaboration with the City of York, this event will have introductory talks and discussion on July 15th, a day of design and coding on the 16th, and a round-up on the 17th, all exploring the creations of games and apps using the large amount of open data York collects, on everything from environmental issues to school attendance. It will also allow for networking with other designers, community groups, industry partners, academics, and more, and be a fun event where everyone will be able to collaborate on game and software design.
Absolutely no technical expertise required!
We look forward to seeing what you all come up with! More information can be found at https://www.cs.york.ac.uk/datadive/ and people can sign up at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/datadiveuniversity-of-york-tickets-26193048112
