With a number of the large in person Data Platform conferences and meetups having to cancel or take a hiatus due to the current Covid-19 outbreak, Matt Gordon (b | t) and myself decided to do something about it.
So we came up with Data Platform Discovery Day. A 2 day online event aimed at those people who are looking for a start in the Data Platform world or are wanting to learn some fundamentals about an aspect of it.
Each day with run alongside business hours across a different continent, and will feature ten 50 minute sessions. Each day will have different speakers, and if you want there’s nothing to stop you attending both if you fancy an early morning or late night
Day 1 is running during US daytime on 29th April. The first session will begin at 9am Eastern Time, and then a new session will being at the top of each hour
Day is running during European daytime on 30th April. The first session will begin at 9am BST (UTC+1), again with a new session starting at the top of each hour.
Registration for the events with start once we’ve finalised the speakers.
And talking of speakers, the Call for Papers for both events are open. You can submit to both events if you want. Please remember that sessions are 50 minutes, and content should ideally be Level 100 material.
