About the event

Data is constantly evolving, especially over the last 5 years. We have seen an unprecedented development of new technologies that have disrupted that status quo. This has naturally led to the establishment of new roles & nothing is more on trend than Analytics Engineering – but what do Analytics Engineers really do and what value do they bring?

On Thursday 6th October we organised an incredible Data Meetup on all things Analytics Engineering, in collaboration with Dojo! Over 150 Data enthusiasts filled Dojo's incredible office space in Paddington for an evening of knowledge sharing, networking, a few drinks & great food!🤩 🙌

We had four fantastic talks covering the entire 'life cycle' of Analytics Engineering. We'd like to say a huge thank you to our wonderful speakers who made the night a true success: George AppsEmanuela CiottiOliver LaslettAndrea Salvati & Rosie Kipling!👏
