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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Seriously, this was a huge crowd. 2015 will be the last year that we'll be able to host at the AT&T Conference Center. Come join us!
