We would like to thank our speakers, sponsors, all the attendees and the volunteers for making the first Phoenix Data Conference a huge success. The intent of the conference was to encourage local community to come together and learn from other practitioners and experts in this field. We strongly believe that an active community and exposure to new ideas is key to help improve the local talent base and improve opportunities for every one. We really hope an educated and well informed talent pool will help bring more interesting companies and work to the greater Phoenix area.
None of this would have been possible without the speakers’ time and effort to share their knowledge with us. It was a pleasure to host all of you. We had a good mix of sessions that included techniques to solve problems using different products, lessons learnt based sessions, deep dive into certain technology, and also a showcase of how companies are implementing their big data strategy.
A Big Thank You also to all the attendees, all the discussions and questions made for a very engaging day. You made the event a great success!!
Lastly, We got quite a few questions around future events, hands on workshops. In addition to the regular monthly meetups, and the Phoenix Data Conference – we also hosted an all day hands on session on Hadoop. Based on the interest and the feedback we received, we will be hosting more workshops in the future to provide hands on training for Hadoop.
If you have any additional feedback, suggestions for future events or any questions please do drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your input is very valuable to help us organize such events – please keep it coming!
