About Zoe
Zoe recently started her first job as a software developer at Flax & Teal LTD making Open Source Software and is an advocate of open data and open source. As the outreach manager at Farset Labs and Code Co-Op co-organiser, she moderately succeeds at balancing event organising, working and raising a toddler (with the help of an inhuman amount of tea).

What Even is a Dataset?
Starting a new job is a daunting experience. Especially when it’s in a new subject area that you’re clueless about. It’s a situation we’ve all been in; and even after studying for years I’m sure a lot of us will question how much we know about the subject area. I started my first software developer job and was thrown into the weirdly interesting and frustrating world of CSVs and Python.
But what is data, and what even is a dataset? How can it be used with Python to create something useful and awesome? It turns out, you don’t need to be massively qualified to work with data, you just have to be willing to learn, make mistakes, and keep on trying - just like in any job!

A walk through Azure

Microsoft's cloud platform is called Azure, but what is it? What does it look like? Why should you care?

In this walk through session we'll cover off what the platform is, what it offers and how you can get started with it.
