CodeNode

In August 2015, Skills Matter opened the doors to CodeNode, our new 23,000 sqft Tech Events and Community venue. CodeNode provides fantastic meetup, conference, training and collaboration spaces with unrivalled technology capabilities for our tech, digital and developer communities - a long held dream coming true !

With fantastic transport links and located in the heart of London's Tech City, we could not think of a better location for our 60,000 strong engineering community!

With seven event rooms, including a 300 seater lecture room, thousands more community members will be able to visit CodeNode to learn and share skills, code and collaborate on projects.

CodeNode features a 5,000 sqft break-out space, complete with fully-licensed bar, plenty of power sockets, meeting and collaboration spaces and entertainment areas.

CodeNode will also see the opening of a permanent Hack Space, stacked with microprocessors and the latest tools and devices to play with. A community film studio will be opening too, which you can use to record any tutorials or demo's you may want to share with our community.

If you're interested in hiring CodeNode for your upcoming event, check out more details here.

Volunteer at InfiniteConf 2017!

Interested in data, and eager to learn the latest news? You have the chance to get a free ticket to InfiniteConf 2017! All we need from you is some help in setting up the conference, and some hours of your time on the days of the conference! You will be free to attend the conference for the remainder of the time.

Are you ready then? Email us at conferences@skillsmatter.com and we will put your name down as a volunteer for InfiniteConf 2017! Shifts and detailed info will be confirmed closer to the conference.

Brian Sletten's Data Science with R Workshop

Monday 3rd, Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th July 2017

Join this workshop on DataScience with R to gain the skills you need to get started with data science, including statistical and numerical methods and R. You will also learn about visualising data, big data environments and how to interact with linked data in R. Upon completion of this DataScience workshop, you will have an understanding of relevant languages and tools.

As there is a rush to hire data scientists these days, there is a coincident rush to update resumes to include the term "Data Scientist". Unfortunately, like most types of science, it is less a single topic and more a multi-disciplinary way of thinking, inquiring and communicating. Individuals do not need to know everything about the field, but teams should be composed of individuals who collectively do.

Attending this workshop won't make you a data scientist overnight, but you will learn to be one in time and will have a study plan for moving forward in this field.

Book a place here.
