What is Dataharvest Digital all about? Well, we don’t have all the details yet – but we are ready to shed light on the overall plan! Here is a sneak preview of what you can expect if you buy a ticket for the full event: 13 weeks with sessions and discussions, usually Tuesday, Wednesday and/or Thursday.
There will also be hands-on data training in separate tracks – more on that shortly!
