We’re delighted to Present an online version of YOW! Data in 2020, featuring selected invited speakers. YOW! Data is an opportunity for data professionals to share their challenges and experiences while our speakers share the latest in best practices, techniques, and tools.

To avoid attendee “screen fatigue” and ensure we can accommodate reasonable time slots for both speakers and attendees across time zones, our online conference will take place across three days, with talks scheduled by theme (Data Science, Data Engineering, Machine Learning/AI) for a few hours each day. Talks will be delivered live and after each session, we’ll head over to the YOW! Data Slack workspace for 25 minutes where you can participate in an interactive Q&A with the speaker, chat about the last talk, visit our partner channels or network in the #hallway-track.

So although we can’t meet face to face right now – you can still network, meet the experts and hone your skills all in one event!
