Plings was a project to open up data on youth projects and activities.
I worked between central (Department for Education) and local government organisations to ensure data on activties was provided and assured in an appropriate format and manner. This involved significant liaison and brokering skills.
In addition, I also worked with developers and creatives to both ensure the Plings API was available and robust, and then facilitate the creation of various interfaces through which to view the data - plug-ins, widgets, social media applications, phone services and other interactive media.
Finally, I ensured that the project was sufficiently documented and communicated, using blogs, wikis and social media.
