The bootcamp, hosted by Fujitsu, is for eight members and four Airmic partners and will provide an intimate and collaborative learning environment. It will take place in London on the 27-29 January 2020. It is free for members.

The bootcamp has been designed in response to members who report they wish to deepen their understanding of data and analytics, topics which are growing both in complexity and importance.
