In its third year, with over 450 attendees, Data Day Texas 2014 was once again the largest data-centric event ever held in Texas. #DDTx15 will no doubt be bigger.
We are expecting the 2015 edition of Data Day Texas to be epic. Already, we're getting queries from speakers around the country (and beyond). We're already reserving hotel blocks as well. (Contact us for a hotel discount code).
Data Day Texas 2014 was a huge success in large part because so many members of the Austin data community took the time to share their thoughts, tell us what speakers they wanted to see, what new technologies they felt should be covered, what new companies should be represented. 2015 will be no different. Tell us what should be on the agenda. Tell us what's new on your radar. Send us a note to email@example.com.
We were able to finance Data Day 2014 pretty much out of the GeekAustin piggybank -- with generous help from Pivotal, Cloudera, and our other sponsors. Data Day 2015 will no doubt be bigger, and to help finance it, we are releasing a limited number of early bird / supporter tickets at half the walk-up registration price. For those of you planning to go, the tickets are now on sale. Take advantage of the early discount.
Thanks for your support.
Seriously, this was a huge crowd. This will be the last year we'll be able to host at the AT&T Conference Center. Come join us this year!
