    Great pleasure to see many data people there. It was until I attended this event did I feel this gathering is run by real people. A small thing to be improved: you could prepare sticker and pen for attendees to write up their names. This would make soialisation much easier.

      Hi Lun-Hsien thanks for the feedback and thanks for coming. That is a good idea! I'm always short of time and am happy if any assistants want to help with things like that.

    I am happy to see we are progressing well from the previous session, both in terms of the coverage of topics and the number of audience. After the second session, I start to look forward to more presentations in the DataPreneurs forum. Well done, Luke.
