DataDay Texas is back!

We still have discount rooms at the AT&T. If you are coming from out of town, this is where all the action is. For the best selection, Book a room now.

Sometime in the middle of May 2021, we started receiving a flood of emails wanting to know: Are we gonna do Data Day 2022? So we sent out a survey to a few hundred past attendees asking if they felt comfortable getting together in January 2022. The response was overwhelmingly yes. We consulted with the AT&T Conference Center, and Data Day Texas is now scheduled for Saturday, January 22nd.

As in years past, we'll be pretty much taking over the entire AT&T Conference Center for a day of sessions, workshops, tutorials, meetings, and a weekend of parties. Registration is open on Eventbrite. For those of you who registered for 2021, your ticket has become a 2022 ticket.

What is Data Day Texas?

Originally launched in January 2011 as one of the first NoSQL / Big Data conferences, Data Day Texas each year highlights the latest tools, techniques, and projects in the data space, bringing speakers and attendees from around the world to enjoy the hospitality that is uniquely Austin. Since its inception, Data Day Texas has continually been the largest independent data-centric event held within 1000 miles of Texas. Our most recent editions have drawn over 1000 attendees.

Data Day Texas - More than presentations and workshops

Over the years we've learned that quite a few Data Day Texas attendees don't actually attend any talks at all. They come to meet up with everyone else. For many, Data Day Texas has become something of an annual reunion. Some schedule meetings, some come for the four or five hallway conversations that might further a project or launch a new one. More than a few have encounters that lead to new jobs. None of this could happen at a virtual conference.

Since 2015, we started booking the hotel presidential suite as a space for the speakers to hang out. We now book it for the entire week surrounding Data Day, and invite speakers to come early and visit Austin. Because we're situated between the campus, the capital and downtown, no car is needed. This is the coolest hotel suite in Austin. The patio is larger than most apartments. The call for speakers is coming soon. Start thinking about a proposal!

Black's Barbecue. People in Amsterdam and Berlin know about it. You can only get it in the Austin area. We serve it at the parties. This is Data Day Texas. You can't do this at a virtual conference. Take advantage of earlybird prices and buy your ticket now.
