Changing the world, one data model at a time. How can I help you?

Live from the 1st Annual World Wide Data Vault Consortium: Day 1

It has been an amazing and historical day in chilly St Albans, Vermont on this first day of Spring.

In a little hotel on the edge of a little town is a gathering of some of the brightest minds in the world of data vault. They have come from around the USA, Canada, Germany, Australia, The Netherlands, and Norway.

Given the location and distance to get here, these are some dedicated folks intent on being the best they can be at their chosen profession.

Like any great user group meeting there was a keynote, user sessions, and lots of networking.

Look at #WWDVC to get the details of all the action for the day. Below I will provide a few pictures to highlight the day.

After a great networking session and a good lunch I gave a 2 hour session on using standards for data modeling (with a few side rants and lots of Q&A).
