Instigate an Unconference/Barcamp/Hackday

Cooperation and Collaboration are crucial in the Computer Sciences, and particularly the Web and Database communities. Socially-oriented events foster such interaction, taking many forms:

  • formal or informal
  • focused on technical or business aspects -- or not!
  • for any user level, from experts to absolute beginners

We are happy to receive proposals or ideas for Unconferences, Barcamps, Hackdays, or UG or IG Meetups. We may be able to help with organization, funding, and/or providing speakers or other content.

Events we've been involved with in the past include:

  • Linked Data Meetups (Cambridge, MA, USA)
  • SemanticCamp London (London, UK)

Please do contact us if you have any suggestions. We would be delighted to hear from you!

This introductory seminar will guide the attendee through

  • What Linked Data is;
  • The technologies from which Linked Data has evolved;
  • How Linked Data can be integrated with pre-existing systems,
  • Where the future of Linked Data is; and
  • Some detail about Open and Proprietary Data and Software.
