The Open Knowledge Foundation are organizing an Open Data Maker
Evening on Tuesday 19th March 6-9pm (you can drop in any time during
the evening).

### What

This will be an informal event focused on "making" with open data --
whether that's creating apps or insights. It won't be a general meetup
-- if you come, expect to get pulled into actually building something,
though we won't force you ;-)!

We'll have some quick introductory talks from David Miller of Open
Healthcare UK about the great things you can do with open health data,
and Rufus Pollock on how to dig into the the government's finances
(and there's space for more ...)

### Who

You don't need to be a geek or an expert to participate - an interest
and a willingness to get your hands dirty (digitally) making something
is all that is needed. If you already have an idea or a problem you'd
like to solve or investigate that's even better!
