What we're about

The focus of this Meetup group is to provide free monthly community data events, leading towards the annual Data Science Festival.

What is the London Data Science Festival?

2021 brings about the new and improved DSF Hybrid Festival for our 26K community members. Our virtual event will run the first four weeks of November, with our final day Saturday 27th November being in person. The live event will be at CodeNode near Moorgate in London.

About us

The Data Science Festival is a global data community. We aim to connect the data world and foster the sharing of knowledge, inspiration, and ideas.

The global network is dedicated to free education through grassroots technical events. We will cover the latest topics that matter most to data scientists and data engineers. There will be no demos that you can learn from a book or video, instead, our speakers will be discussing real-world problems, what works, what doesn’t work, and why they’ve implemented the solutions they have. They will generate lively discussion and debate, offering real-world takeaways to help you in your job.

Who is the Data Science Festival for?

• Data engineers, analysts, scientists, and other practitioners

• Academics, founders, researchers, authors

• R, Python, and other software engineers who work with data or want to learn

• Data visualisation developers and designers

• Non-technical team leads, executives, and other decision-makers from data centric startups and large companies looking to utilise open-source tools

Decision Making: Why should the last mile of analytics be your first priority?

Network event

Welcome to #DSFsandboxsessions

In this Sandbox Session on Thursday 26th May, Anh Tran from DevoTeam will discuss 'Decision Making: Why should the last mile of analytics be your first priority?'.

Session abstract: Organizations are making massive investment in digital transformation but many stumble and fall to achieve the expected return. Only few who target much of this budget towards the toughest challenge companies face in extracting value from analytics -the last mile- could improve decision making process and consequently better business outcomes.
This session reveals that secret- the last mile- which 90% of organizations that significantly outperform peers have in common through addressing:
What is the last mile of analytics?
Why could the last mile of analytics make big returns?
Why work backward could help companies move forward?

Ticket Allocation Process:
