Take advantage of our discount rooms at the conference hotel.

Jesse Anderson, managing director of the Big Data Institute, will be returning as a featured speaker to Data Day Texas. This time we asked him to come a day early to offer a one day version of his Professional Kafka Development workshop for us. He agreed. Normally, this course would cost over a thousand dollars. We have negotiated a special price for the Data Day community. There will only be one section of this class. Don't miss the opportunity!
