OpenTech 2017

When: Saturday 13th May 2017.
Where: Malet St
Cost:£5 on the door.
Currently:

OpenTech 2017 is an informal, low cost, one-day conference on slightly different approaches to technology, experience and democracy. Talks by people who work on things that matter, guarantees a day of thoughtful talks leading to conversations with friends.

We've still got a call for talks open. If there's something you'd like to hear about at OpenTech, we'd love to hear what you'd like to hear about, and we'll see what we can do.

With a month until OpenTech 2017, we’re really excited by this year’s schedule. As you’ll see it’s a fantastic, diverse line up of talks by a whole range of people working on issues and projects that really matter, after a year of democracy doing things that it wasn’t necessarily expected to do. Go take a look at: http://www.opentech.org.uk/2017/schedule.

This event's predecessors, in 2015, 2013, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, and 2005 were low cost, one-day conferences about technologies that anyone can have a go at, from "Open Source"-style ways of working to repurposing everyday electronics hardware. Before that was NotCon 2004, an informal, low-cost, one-day conference on things that technologies were perhaps not intended to do.
