November’s JellyLiverpool returned to the popular Parr St Studios venue. This great location provides such a welcoming and comfortable setting which is so well suited to the Jelly format that it has now become a favourite among Jelly regulars.
If you haven’t yet experienced Jelly, perhaps it’s time to check it out. Ask yourself, do you:-
- * work from home, trudge from coffee shop to coffee shop in search of wifi and power?
- * wish that “working for yourself” didn’t always have to mean “working by yourself”?
- * get “cabin fever” and are desperate for a change of scene, some inspiration and motivation?
If the answer to any of these questions is YES; then JellyLiverpool is what you need!
Don’t worry, Jelly isn’t about finding new clients, pitching your business or selling. Jelly is for anyone who’d like to work alongside other creative people in a welcoming environment. It’s a mixture of work, chat, comparing of ideas, passing on tips and help and maybe sometimes collaboration on the birth of a new project.
Bring your laptop and some work, and Jelly provides wifi, a table and chairs, and smart people to bounce ideas off and collaborate with.
We hold JellyLiverpool on the first Thursday in each month, so the next one will be on 2nd December (venue tbc). Don’t miss the chance to mingle with the up and coming movers and shakers in Liverpool.
It an opportunity for presenters (that’s you!) to share their personal and professional passions, using a 20 slides auto-advancing 15 seconds – that’s quick – for a total of just five minutes.
Open Labs is very excited to announce the 4th Liverpool Ignite will be held on Tuesday 23rd November at Liverpool Medical Institute.
The venue is amazing and full of history, you’ve been past it but have you ever been inside – come and have a look.
Remember, enlighten us but make it quick!
Scraperwiki in association with Open Labs@LJMU are hosting the first ever Student Edition of Hacks meet Hackers.
So what’s this hack day all about? This practical day will demonstrate how student coders, programmers, web developers and designers will pair up with student journalists to produce projects and stories based around publicly available data.
Who’s it for? We want to attract students with skills in journalism, data visualisation, design, coding, programming, statistics & games development etc.
What will students get out of it? The aim is to show students journalists how to use programming and design techniques to create online news stories and features; and vice versa, to show student coders/developers/programmers how to find, develop, and polish stories and features.
What should participants bring? We would encourage students to come along with ideas for local ‘datasets’ that they are interested in. Flexibility is key for this event. If you have a laptop, please bring this too.
But what exactly will happen on the day itself? Armed with laptops and WIFI, students will be put into teams of around four to develop ideas, with the aim of finishing final projects that can be published and shared publicly. Each team will then present their project to the whole group.
When is it? 8th December 2010
Where is it? Academy of Art & Design
Time: 9.30am–5pm (food & beverages provided)
