DATA Play 11: Climate emergency

Market Hall, Devonport
Thursday 18 November 2021, 9.30am to 4.30pm

DATA Play 11 is coming soon and we want you to get involved!

We’re excited to be running another DATA Play day on the 18 November 2021 which will explore how data and technology can help the city’s challenges. This time it’s focused on the climate emergency. Once again we will be working with local talent and tech companies to explore how open data and technology can be used to help the Council deliver services in new ways.

You can play as a team, meet people on the day or experiment on your own – whatever works for you! It’s free to join, so whatever you’re good at – coding, analysis, mapping, graphics, thinking – come along and join in the fun!
