Hard to believe it is less than 25 days to WWDVC 20016. I’m going. Are you?
If not, why not?
The 3rd Annual World Wide Data Vault Consortium is going to be epic!
What is the WWDVC?
It’s the only conference that focuses on everything happening in the Data Vault world, and this time, the keynote speaker is the father of Data Warehousing himself Bill Inmon. He created the industry in which we earn our daily bread.
The sessions start prior to the conference with a closed room meeting of Data Vault certified brainstorming. I will be there for sure to talk about Data Vault in the Cloud and of course experiences in virtualizing layers of the data vault architecture. I can hardly wait to discuss what I have learned this year with the other data vault brainiacs.
This is followed by a day of hands on workshops:
How to build a DV, a Data Mart, and End User Analytics from Scratch in 3 hours
Extend the power of the Data Vault to a real-time use case using a Spark based Lambda architecture
Generate code using the award winning Mapping Manager tool
And, these are all before the conference even starts.
There’s a lot more during the conference including the famous networking sessions which this event is known for. If you’ve already booked your seat, see you there. If not, what are you waiting for?
For something so valuable, you would expect a hefty price tag like the vendors do it.
Nope, it’s dirt cheap.
Check it out for yourself here:
It’s a conference for Data Warehouse people with a Data Vault focus. Folks like you. It does have many things for the business person as well such as selling the Data Vault concept to the business owner (Peter Aiken), case studies including implementation of an Near Real Time DV 2.0 in the cloud, and a customer centric analytics case study, and more.
Give Your Brain a Treat
Some of the smartest people in Data Warehousing I know, have been in attendance in the past. This is a once a year chance to meet them in person, increase your network, and have a great time
This time it appears to have been kicked up a notch with the likes of John Giles (Universal Data Vault), Peter Aiken (In one instance their DV 2.0 helped save a client a whopping $25M/year), Bill Inmon (The father of the DW), Dale Anderson (Used the DV to build one of the world’s first DaaS).
There are also the repeat attendees like Mary Mink and Sam Bendayan (Used DV 2.0 to implement an NRT DW sourced from a NoSQL platform serving 3000+ customers), Michael Olschimke (Co-author of the new DV 2.0 book), Roelant Vos (Not only did he build his own automation, he likes to experiment … with architecture).
And … vendors of automation tools. Several of the world’s leading Data Warehouse Automation tools will not only be there, they are sponsoring (and buying dinner and drinks!).
And as if that is not enough, you will get to rub elbows with Dan Linstedt, the inventor of Data Vault, Sanjay (co-founder of LearnDataVault.com), and of course me, Kent, The Data Warrior.
So what are you waiting for? Go buy your ticket to the conference, book your room, and figure out how you will get there (hitch hike if you have to).
See you in Vermont!

P.S. Don’t forget Saturday at WWDVC is crazy shirt day.
P.P.S. The company I work for, Snowflake Computing, is a sponsor and is giving me a GoPro! to raffle off, so, don’t miss my talk on Thursday if you want in on the raffle.
