Open Data Camp 3: mostly in pics

Open Data Camp is a two-day, weekend event, entirely devoted to Open Data. It loosely follows the ‘Unconference‘ format. Open Data Camp 3 was held in Bristol, May 14-15 2016, organised by a group of volunteers, active in the UK Open Data ecosystem; this storify is by Pauline Roche (@paulineroche)
