There's a lot to love about open knowledge and open technology, and the OpenTechSchool aims to exist at the nexus of these. We provide entry-level tech workshops that are free and open in every way we can imagine, down to the typeface in our logo.  In this talk I'll give you a rundown of the way we work, what we've achieved globally over the last four years, and where we want to go with this in the future.

Finally, I will provide a template for you to open your own chapter in your city, and add to our repository of open workshops with your own ideas.

== OVERVIEW ==
+
Community Leadership - No CFP
  
Open data is cool, especially when it comes from government. What’s even cooler than open data? Games. Games are cool. So why not combine them?  This talk explores the potential for spreading the word about open data, as well as providing for deeper engagement with data, through game development.
+
=== Miniconf Schedules ===
  
== DESCRIPTION ==
 
  
Open data, such as that provided by many governments around the world[1] is cool. It’s fantastic to see countries around the world opening as much as they can, allowing citizens and interested parties to build upon and enhance the myriad of interesting information collected by countries. There’s a lot of people doing great work with this sort of data, but have to be pretty passionate, engaged, and motivated in order to get involved.
+
==== Monday 1st Feburary ====
  
We found another way. For the last three years we’ve been participating in hackathons and jams, and taking open (government) data and turning it into games.
 
  
This session explores why this is a good idea, and how you might want to do it to. We cover:

We’ve built games –– often at GovHack[2] in Australia that do everything from turn your local politician’s parliamentary voting history into a party game, to parsing and interpreting a giant database incorporating all the functional roles in a government, and turning it into a SpaceTeam style party game. We’ll tell you how you can do the same thing in your community, how to make it engaging and meaningful, why you might want to do this, and how to get started.

Demography is used by democratic governments to exercise control. Whatever results the administration and courts deem necessary to release to the public may be handy for civil society analysts and activists. However critical thinkers may disagree with many ways that governments classify and colonise the human experience. I will talk about the connection between open demography and governance. I will discuss the source of demographic methodologies. I will consider the prospects and pitfalls of open demography.
