Big Data Ldn 2018

Today I went with another graduate to the Big Data Ldn event @ Olympia London. It was soooo busy! So many great talks on that you weren’t able to attend all the ones you wanted to go to because you couldn’t get in! But, it was good talking to some vendors and getting to understand how their products were tackling company big data issues and the architecture around that. The key message I got from attending this is that we can utilise the Data we are collecting more and do more with it then we deem possible at the moment! We need to think out of the box and use data to our advantage whilst also being ethical (I also managed to get some good freebies, including two very punny t-shirts)

Unfortunately, I’m not able to attend tomorrow’s continued conference, but I was able to attend topics such as:

– Can Britain lead the 4th industrial revolution?

– AI vs GDPR

– Fortune 100 lessons on architecting Data lakes for real-time analytics

– Women In Data

– MIFlow: Supporting the end-to-end machine learning lifecycle

First Journeyman Dinner

Great evening at the WCIT Journeyman Dinner, it’s great that a charitable and well established livery company and the men and women who make it so great, care so much about mentoring the younger members! Very appreciated and I look forward to giving back how I can too!

Made In Brunel

img_0208Yesterday evening I had the opportunity to present my dissertation to industry experts at Brunel University’s Made In Brunel: Software Innovation event! It was a really great evening and I met some very impressive people. I really enjoyed being able to talk through my dissertation project and gain feedback on the concept that I have been working on with GSK.

Four years ago I met one of my great friends on my course at a Made In Brunel event, which we were invited to as prospective students, since then it has always been a goal to present too, so I’m really happy that I was able to come full circle and end my university career where it had started.

Tomorrow… Made In Brunel: Software Innovation Event

As a final year student at Brunel University, I will be showcasing my dissertation product at the Made In Brunel event on 17th April 2018 4-7pm, among other Level 2 and final year students. Several companies will be at the event to judge the showcased projects and give out prizes.

This is also a great networking opportunity and if you would like to attend or know more information you can take a look here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/made-in-brunel-software-innovation-tickets-43967148926
