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
My week summed up: Early mornings, awful drives home, free lunch and nice work campus walks 🤓
Now for the weekend, seeing my boyfriend and relaxing before doing it all again next week!
Many people ask what is it like to work in IT… what do I even do other than tell people to turn things off and on again? Well, as much as that is a common expression, that isn’t all it takes to work in IT!
So for the month of November, I am going to post up a photo and update each day, to share with you what it is like being a #WomaninTech and a graduate !

It’s with great pleasure (and amazement) that I say I have over 1500+ followers over 4 social media platforms, but I’d love to grow this even further, so that IT Girl can try to help one more girl out there into STEM and to grow a bigger network at the same time. So please share http://www.TashaITGirl.com on any platform you see fit, or if you have any ideas it would be great to collaborate with 🤓 Thank you x
Little bit of an evening read to just expand my knowledge on Solution Architecture and the different frameworks behind it!
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!
If you’re interested in learning more about the WCIT, then feel free to get in contact or check out their website 🤓
I was thinking about how I could expand my coding knowledge in my spare time, without having to sit at a computer to learn.
So I took a look at the “learn to code” apps on the Apple App Store, and after trying out a few I found that the reviews and the ease of use is in the Mimo App.
So give it a go – it may be for you 🤓 📱
TechCrunch did a great article on their opinion of it: https://techcrunch.com/2016/08/19/mimos-new-app-teaches-you-how-to-code-on-your-iphone/?guccounter=1
On Friday night I met up for dinner with a colleague from my placement year at GSK, she is such a cool and kick ass lady and definitely helped to teach me how to handle yourself when managing men and how to stand up for yourself in the workplace 💪
Find yourself a Kerry to help show you the way!
