An Official Big Data Week festival event.
Join us on 7th May, at University College London, where the Big Data Week London team will host and chair a day of case studies, presentations, community showcases and debates with the UK data Community. We’ll have a community segment to the day, with speakers from across all the UK Data Meetup communities speaking about their passion and making this an interactive day for all.
