    If you want a taste of what's to come, last year's Open Con London 2014 satellite event that we organised with Sparrho and held at Imperial College London was a great success. With a fantastic line up of speakers and a diverse group of attendees, we had some very thought-provoking discussions, particularly around open data and reproducibility. The main sessions were live-streamed on the day and so the recordings are available to re-watch on YouTube.

    You can follow the 2015 event online using the #OpenCon hashtag, and we'll post the livestream links nearer the time. See you in November!!
