Another great link has been forged with local business and Godalming College. Computer Science and Information Technology students at the College were treated to an inspiring keynote lecture describing the work of Altius; A market leading Data Analysis company.
James Dales, (Data Architect Director) explained the cloud based architecture Altius uses and how this not only provides cost savings but also provides access to real time data and the raft of opportunities that comes with it. To highlight the power of these techniques, James completed a live demo where in a few minutes starting from scratch he was able to produce a stunning visualisation of live worldwide air traffic data which could be queried quickly and easily to show flights of a specific aircraft.
James and a colleague Jordan also gave short Bio's that showed there are a number of routes into the industry not just higher education. The session closed with a lively Q&A that touched on the technology, social impacts and career opportunities within the industry.
We are very grateful for the time Altuis spent with us and look forward to working together in the future.
