What Our Attendees Say

Data Council was really great. The vibe and culture were exactly what I felt from following the RSS feeds, Twitter, watching YouTube, etc. for the last couple of years, and what attracted me to want to come to the event. I will be recommending it to friends! It was a real pleasure speaking.

Just wanted to reach out to thank you for the opportunity to speak at the conference. As a conference it was very informative and the talks inspired some of my software design approaches. I'm sharing my experiences with my team to help spread the knowledge.

Data Council is a really a great conference for technical talks with real insights to data engineering challenges and solutions. As an engineer who works on open-source software I found it helpful to hear first hand from users that are working on real world challenges.

Max 500: We are not a “mega-conference”

We aim to keep attendees lower than 500 attendees for any Data Council event or conference. We've been there too, and we know the reason you attend conferences is not to be sold to or lose yourself in a massive sea of attendees.

Aiming for less than 500 attendees ensures that you have a fair chance to engage with speakers 1:1 on your favorite track during Speaker Office Hours. It's worth noting that this is not a watered-down "mega-conference," but an intentional community-powered conference for engineers & scientists, by engineers & scientists, like yourself!

Generally, our conferences attract between 300-500 people depending on the season, location, and speakers.

Speaker Office Hours: Meet your crowd

Most speakers hold "office hours" after their talk, which are a great opportunity to take the discussion further in a smaller setting. 

Unlike Q&A where you are usually limited to asking one question, you will be able to have an in-depth back-and-forth discussion with the speaker and like-minded attendees - a great way to learn more and build long-term relationships.

Attendees often mention Speaker Office Hours as one of their favorite perks of attending our events.
