EDITED TO ADD: Wow, we have reached capacity on this event for the 17th. If you’d like to come, please drop us a line at the address below, and we’ll let you know if a space becomes available. Alternatively, ask to be added to the list for the next week.

NB, If you have claimed a space, please let us know if you won’t make it, so we can offer your space to someone else.

Hey you! Yeah, you, the cool one, hacking on civic and democratic tech. Or thinking about it, at least.

How about dropping in to a mySociety hack night, hosted by the Open Data Institute? It’s a great space, and there’ll be food, drink, and friendly people to talk through your ideas with and actually get those projects on the go.

No agenda and no talks; it’s just a chance to spend some time showing what you’re working on, swapping ideas and getting advice from other people interested in the fields of civic technology and open data.

Where? At the Open Data Institute, 65, Clifton Street, London EC2A 4JE. We’re on the third floor. Map

When? Weekly from Wednesday 17th July, 6:00 – 9:00 pm

Who? Anyone with a bit of technical knowledge. We’ll be there to chat things through and maybe help with sticky problems.

Why? Get going on that website or tool you’ve always wanted to build; meet people who are interested in the same stuff as you; oh and did we mention the food?

If that all sounds good, drop us a line on to let us know you’re coming to be added to the wait list.

  1. Blimey, that was quick. Count me in a gap opens up.

    Myf, what ever happened to pub nights? I’ve not seen one advertised for a very long time.

  2. Hi David,
    I have added you to the waitlist for the 17th – there are still masses of spaces on the subsequent weeks (we’re booking up to 7th Aug) so let me know if you’d like to come on one or more of those nights.

    Pub nights – you’re right, we haven’t had one for quite a while. Largely because we’ve been concentrating on other events, and partly because we simply haven’t been in London en masse lately.
