The third Data Analytics Conference hosted free for ACFO-ACAF members as part of the Joint Career Development Program will be taking place on February 5, 2020, at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa with a webcast offered for those unable to attend in-person.
This full-day, hands-on workshop for members new to data analytics will include data visualization and Power BI demonstrations by Patrick Boily from uOttawa and Data Action Lab where participants may optionally bring their own laptops to join along in the exercise.
