ESRC Festival of Social Science logoThe Manchester Open Data Dive was a one-day hackathon event, organised in partnership with the UK Data Service, bringing together coders, data enthusiasts, graphic designers, project managers and end users from all sectors. The event brought people with a range of skills into the same room to collaborate intensively on socio-economic data projects. During the day, there were short parallel workshops on finding and understanding data, using APIs and Big Data.



Two projects won the Data Dive and the code can be found on GitHub.

We have put together a Storify of the event, and we’ve also written a blog post on our Data Impact Blog.
