What's new for Data Day Texas 2017

Can you believe it? This will be the 6th annual Data Day Texas! and guess what? We started working on DDTX17 immediately after the end of DDTX16 -- back in January. Lots of new things are in the works for the upcoming edition. Many of the speakers you've requested for 2017 are booked a year in advance, so we've already been reaching out -- and we're just now starting to confirm the first wave of speakers.

Despite the fact that we absolutely blew out the venue to capacity last year, we're not moving. We don't want to make Data Day Texas bigger. We want to make it better. We will no doubt sell out much earlier than last year. Best to get your ticket now - and get the lowest price.


Charity Majors @mipsytipsy gave the keynote to a full house for Data Day 2016. This is what a sold out event looks like. Buy your tickets now and save money.


Data Day Texas is based entirely on feedback from the Austin data community. What do you want to see this year? Take a moment and share your thoughts with us at suggestions@datadaytexas.com.
