D4GX 2016: Closing Thoughts

We want to thank everyone who participated in Data for Good Exchange 2016: speakers, presenters, panelists, audience, and all the staff and coordinators. Once again we had an amazing array of content, audience interaction in every session, and some engaging and thought-provoking keynotes.

We’ve included some selected posts from audience members below, from the variety of posts that the attendees made on Twitter during the event. We’ll begin planning the 2017 event in the next few months, so keep an eye on this blog and our @TechAtBloomberg Twitter handle for announcements when we open the call for papers, announce the dates, and open registration. We hope to see you there!
