After the great feedback we got last year for the first Data Platform Discovery day we’re going to be doing another one on September 21st 2021.

We’re still going to have great intro sessions to Data Platform topics help you kickstart your Data Platform career or just so you know what your techies are talking about.

But this year we’re also going to be having Panel discussions between the sessions. We’ll be picking a range of people to discuss Data Platform topics, different ways to start you Data Platform career, and also how people can make the Data Platform community and workplaces better spaces for everyone

Also this year we’re going to be running a single day that goes from 10:00 till 19:00 UTC. This allows us to cover a wide range of Timezones and gives audiences a chance to maybe see speakers they wouldn’t normally get to.

More details will be announced on the web site as we work them out –

Our Call for Speakers is now open! So if you have some great intro/level 100 sessions you feel would help a someone starting out then we’d love for you to submit. Do you have something you wish someone would have told you when you first started? Then submit it here –

If you’d like to take part in the panels, then please read through the descriptions: DPDD 2021 panel descriptions. We’re looking for anyone who can offer insights or commentary on any of these topics. If that sounds like you then please submit a ‘session’ with the title of the panel your interested in, and use the abstract box to tell us a bit about yourself and why you’d be great on our panel
