Bangalore Open Data Camp (ODCBLR) is an annual un-conference that provides a space to discuss the challenges and experiences of using data in India with the aim of promoting an open-data culture in government, private and the not-for-profit sector.

The 2015 edition of  ODCBLR will be an Education Special. With the growth of data and analytics in education, and the organizations working to demystify government data, the time is right to create a space for data enthusiasts to come together to work through issues unique to this sector.
