Presenters at this conference for the expert public included, for example, Matt Lukowski of Fourth Analytics, Paul Cook of Just-Eat, Pavel Doležal of Keboola and Martin Zeman of BI Marks and Spencer.
The DataGirls workshop was focused on promoting technologies and, primarily, data science among women and girls, who were addressed by experts from the Czech companies Keboola and GoodData. A competitive hackathon was held during the whole period of the festival.
