We’re trying to make our #EULife AppChallenge developer contest as easy to enter as possible so we’ve created some open data video tutorials. In this video we show you how to register and get your API Key for the UK Data Service Open Data API.

This key allows programmatic access to the open data from Eurofound, called the European Quality of Life Survey from 2007 and 2011. Containing information about well being, quality of life, whether people are making ends meet and how they feel about the society they live in. It’s a fascinating insight into Europeans and how they think during a time of recession and austerity.

Check out some of the later open data video tutorials where we build Python and Javascript apps live on screen thanks to our resident expert programmer, Philipp Rustemeier.
