Data Discovery Centre ‘pops up’ at Traffex, 4-6 April 2017, NEC, Birmingham
We thought a Data Discovery Centre would be a perfect next step to follow #brumdatahack. Thanks to those lovely people at Traffex, we have the chance to test out our theory, live, in the middle of Europe’s largest highways and traffic exhibition 😉 (no pressure then…!!).
With our purpose-built centre at stand G81, we’ll be working with visualisation tools to make sense of the #brumdatahack datasets.
We’ll be unlocking the mysteries that lie undiscovered in existing datasets. And we’ve got some friends popping by to help you learn to code, play with lego, and see that fabulous new product Yotta are launching in summer 2017 – yep that’ll be Alloy!!
This will be great fun, and gives us a wonderful opportunity to learn and explore what a more permanent Data Discovery Centre should be and do.
Why what we’re doing is important:
