It’s our 4th birthday! And the power of Open Data.

Today is our 4th birthday! Thanks for all the support and great comments over the years.

For this birthday post, we wanted to mention how much our Open Data gets used. Events are posted to Slack groups, Facebook groups and email lists. Many other websites take and redisplay our events.

Including ….. us! We wanted to try something new with a very simple and lean UI, so we set up the new site Find Tech In Scotland and launched it today! Check it out at https://find.techin.scot/

The idea is this will be a simple portal into the tech community in Scotland. As well as events we want to list other things, and are already talking to several different sources of data we can include – watch this space!

But hopefully this shows the power of an open events platform. We are looking forwards to the future and as always, welcome your comments here or in private.

Thanks, and talk soon!
