TestBoard and Keboola team up to co-host Data Festival at London Tech Week on 15th June

Practically-focussed event to be followed by weekend hackathon featuring real-world data provided by Keboola

Testboard, together with Keboola and TLA Data tech, have joined forces to co-host a data transformation festival at London Tech Week, the largest tech gathering in Europe, attracting over 55k visitors from more than 90 countries globally.

The one-day event, intended for senior data/analytics personnel, CDOs or heads of marketing, will take place at the Google Digital Academy, 123 Buckingham Palace Road, London on 15th June. During the course of the day, participants will find out from a panel of experts how data-driven processes can streamline workflows, improve knowledge-sharing, thus fostering smarter working practices in data analysis. They will also learn about major stumbling blocks by considering a number of  real-world examples and be given tips and advice on how to avoid them in their specific roles.

The speaker line-up includes a senior analyst from Google, Peter Jackson, CDO at Southern Water and co-author of the book "The Chief Data Officer's Playbook", Russ Shaw, Founder of Tech London Advocates & Global Tech Advocates, Marcin Zaba, Head of Marketing at Syndicate Room and Alban Gérôme VP, Data & CX Technology Manager at Barclays plc. A full list of speakers and the conference programme is available here.

Says Colin Smith, Founder of TestBoard; "We're really excited to co-hosting this interactive event with Keboola and TLA Data Tech; it will provide the perfect opportunity for both data experts and data novices to share their experiences and pool ideas for driving change in their company culture to be more democratised, self-organised and data-focussed."

From workflow concepts to hands-on hack:

Data Festival London will be followed by a weekend hackathon, where software engineers, developers, testers, project managers, or anyone else tasked with leading a change, can obtain practical experience of working with live data under the guidance of experienced analysts and practitioners.

Says Don Slope, Head of Growth at Keboola: "We wanted a fast paced event that allowed a lot of people to share their different stories and experiences, opening the forum on what we've all been thinking and feeling when it comes to the process of data transformation. A genuine opportunity to draw confidence, removing conflict and discovering which of the varied approaches could work for the people and our businesses."

Tickets for both the festival and hackathon are available here
