Pitching
If you’ve never been to an unconference before, we have published a short article explaining the pitching process and what to expect.

Food
Lunch will be available both days. Big thanks to all those who completed our food form.
If you have special dietary needs but have not completed the form, we are now unable to adjust the order so you will need to make your own arrangements.

And finally, please take a look at our Code of Conduct. This is an important part of how we keep Open Data Camp the friendly, welcoming and supportive event that it is. If you have any concerns while at the camp, you can speak with one of our volunteers, who will be clearly spottable in our somewhat classy maroon campmaker t-shirts or hi-viz vests.
