Talks that keep you Awake!

Our talks are backed by our 100% No Bullshit Guarantee* and delivered by leading data scientists and engineers from top organizations like Facebook, Netflix, Lyft, Salesforce, Colombia University, WeWork, MIT & many more.

Multiple Unique Tracks

This is our first Asia event, and as such there will be lots of good data content in different tracks, we just haven't locked down the program nor the tracks yet. Please check back later.

Max - 500

Tired of mega-conferences where its hard to interact with people? We are too, so we limit attendees to 500 for each of our events. Our attendees are also highly-skilled data scientists, engineers, analysts & engineering managers.

Born to be Open Source

We believe in Open Source; code, content and mentality. We feature top open source contributors and tools at our talks. Afterwards, we publish all content for the community, for free.

Community Powered

We are a diverse group of geeks, coders, scientists, analysts (& a former astronaut serving your lunch). We care deeply about local data communities, no big $/€ sponsors here, just data nerds, like you & I.

Networking that works

Experience our popular "Office Hours" format plus our favored Data Community Party. Through our intentional matching opportunities you'll meet data influencers who will positively impact your career.
