In the footsteps of the success of SFU’s long-running Philosopher’s Café series, the City Program presents the Data Café.

The Data Cafe will be moderated by Andy Yan, a data guru himself and acting director of the SFU City Program.

To prime the conversation, we’ll start with a few data professionals from the city and region. From there, attendees will be encouraged to share their data work about the City of Vancouver and region, techniques, and lessons learned. While tales of triumphs are appreciated, stories of ongoing data and visualizations challenges are encouraged where the audience can pitch technical advice or words of encouragement. If attendees wish to present, bring your laptop. Presentations should be less than 7 minutes.

Speakers: Andy Yan, Acting Director of the SFU City Program; James Raymond, Research & Analysis Manager, Vancouver Economic Commission; Prof. Meghan Winters, Faculty of Health Sciences, Simon Fraser University; Linda Low, City of Vancouver Open Data Catalogue
