This is a quick post to announce #FloodHack16.

Where, When?

We will be running #FloodHack16 on the 11th & 12th March here at ODI Leeds — we will be looking at what challenges the recent flooding created and what technology, data and innovation can do to help us all, and building stuff that works.


Its supported by Leeds, Calderdale & Bradford Councils — hopefully York will be joining us as well.

We also have support from TechNorth & ODI HQ to make this happen, be involved and and get as much interest as possible.

The Environment Agency & DEFRA are engaged and we're confident that they will be with us too.

Open Data Manchester are also in the mix and will be involved; ODI Leeds are speaking at their event on the 1st February.

What we need now; is the people that, were involved, were affected, understand the engineering, understand water & flooding, can build digital services, can use data and can develop stuff to get involved.
