We’ve got some wonderful Data Lab socks that you can get your hands on (or feet into)! And what’s more, we’re running a competition to see who can tweet the best photo of themselves wearing our lovely socks whilst off doing important data science work. The winner of our photo competition will get a FREE ticket to DataSummit19.
