Young web developers and designers in Brighton are being asked to show the Government what they can do with public data, creating interesting websites, applications and visualisations, as part of this year's Young Rewired State.
The week-long event starts on 2nd August and gives groups of 15-18 year-olds the opportunity to put their skills into practice, supported by experienced web professionals.
They’ll spend their time in the offices of a local business, exploring how they can turn crime statistics, hospital waiting times or any other public information from Data.gov.uk [http://www.data.gov.uk/]
- into something they can present back to people in Government at the end of the week.
Young Rewired State is taking place across the country, and this year there will be an outpost in the offices of NixonMcInnes in central Brighton.
They are looking for participants from the Sussex area, who are between the ages of 15 and 18, and are confident with creating websites or applications, or using graphic design software.
