Health Innovation Lab – Innovating Type-2 Diabetes

On Saturday 27.02.16, I volunteered at the Leeds Student Data Labs health hack – innovating around type 2 diabetes using open data. We were inspired by DJ Patil and his approach to data science.

It was a long but productive day, with students from multiple disciplines and all over Yorkshire. Here’s how it went: health innovation lab storify.

Meetup: Agile, Remote Team Work – Without losing your marbles!

Remote work is growing – be that full-time remote staff, collaborating with freelancers, consultants and offshore teams or working from home every now and again.

Working well as a remote team, especially one that embraces agile principles means understanding and supporting how individuals and the team works as well as using the right digital tools. It’s tough but rewarding and when well managed, can lead to a productive, integrated team where everyone gets a good work-life balance.

At Open Data Services, a digital worker’s co-operative, we are a completely distributed team with no offices. At the Agile Leeds meetup on 21.03.2016, I will explore how we make our team work and what we’ve learned along the way.
