Pauline Roche is talking us through the process. There are a lot of unconference first-timers here. But, now they’re briefed, let the pitching begin
- Open Data Horror stories – to allow policy development – and risk assessment.

- Are you the missing (open data) link? What’s your role – who depends on you, and whom do you depend on?
- Volunteering as a data scientist for charity – what’s the supply chain of data?
- Open registers – and connecting them to GPs
- Every Politician – why WikiData is the future of it.
- Open data impact: measurement, demand drives, supporting bodies and standardisation.
- What is the least effort to make our open data services better?
- Dogfooding for revenue. Data is not just something we stick out, but something we use.
- Open data for newbies
- What does the Government Digital Service need to do to engage better?
- Using open data for creating neighbourhood plans
- The Government should be testing the value of open data by releasing some sets – would it work?
- What does the very best open statistic look like?
Shut the front door. I've just pitched my first ever unconference session. Be kind to me #odcamp folks. Open stats are super cool, honest

- Identifiers for organisations and people.
- Public wifi data – what could people do with it?
- What data set are you working on that isn’t getting enough coverage in the press?
- Open data for fun and education
I'm running an "Open data for fun and education" session in rm 3 at 1545. I completely made it up on the spot so it'll be hilarious #ODCamp
