The ODI Friday lunchtime lecture series is now available to listen to and download as a podcast on iTunes or via the RSS feed.

Friday lunchtime lectures are for everyone and free to attend. You bring your lunch, we provide tea and coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.

They run from 1pm-1.45pm, with informal networking until 2pm, weekly during UK school term-times. Each lecture runs for around 20 minutes, leaving time for questions afterwards. The lectures do not require any specialist knowledge, but are focused around communicating the meaning and impact of open data in all areas of life.
