Digital Plymouth is back! And quicker than ever before! Join us on the 7 February for our first Meetup of 2019 with a pair of fantastic speakers.
Dr Lorna Dallas is a Safety Engineer by day and campaigner for gender equality by night. As a scientist, engineer, feminist and Chair of Women in STEM Plymouth, she has a unique skillset and a passion for making herself (and hopefully the world) better. She’ll be talking about the importance of the 400 Women project and how you can get involved.
Lucy Knight is a balancing act on the geek/wonk interface with nearly two decades working in public sector data analysis, policy and data science with a side of open data and citizen science. She is currently Lead Data Scientist at the Food Standards Agency, registered trainer for the Open Data Institute and co-founder of ODI Devon and of ThingsCamp and The Data Place. She’ll be examining the expectations and misunderstandings around what it means to be a data scientist. Warning: May or may not contain actual unicorns. Keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter for more details.
