Thursday 15th January 2015. The Porter, Bath.
We were very excited to have kicked off Girl Geek’s 10th Birthday year with a hands-on workshop on data hacking from the team at Bath:Hacked.
There was a drinks reception from 6.30pm to catch up with fellow Girl Geeks and welcome new faces to the group. Followed by a presentation, dinner and a hands-on workshop.
Knowing how to glean useful insights from data is becoming an increasingly important skill to have. Leigh Dodds from the Open Data Institute, who also plays an instrumental role in Bath:Hacked events, delivered a presentation and practical workshop on ‘hacking data’ to give us a taster of what’s involved in a typical ‘hack’, the skills involved and how to get started.
