DataDay Texas is back!

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.

Take advantage of earlybird prices and buy your ticket now.
