In-Person Conferences: Are They Worth It?
The Data Warrior Kent Graziano and DataRebels Owner, Cindi Meyersohn, are back for another conversation! Today, the topic of discussion is in-person conferences – in an ever-increasing virtual world, is there a benefit to traveling to be in-person?
Kent: Hey there Cindi, so we’re here talking about the benefits of in-person conferences. I’m going to just come out and state the obvious, that YES, being at events in-person is much more enjoyable and beneficial in general. The interactions with speakers live, the chance to ask questions and network, and the ability to share your thoughts with industry leaders – the value of those things should not be underestimated. We’ll circle back around to general discussion, but full disclosure, we’re talking specifically about one conference that’s coming up: the WWDVC 2023.
Cindi: Right Kent, it’s going to be the first week of May, so it’s coming up quickly! And DataVaultAlliance has a huge line up of who’s who in data analytics:
- The father of data warehousing, Bill Inmon
- Inventor of Data Vault, Dan Linstedt
- The author of “An Introduction to Database Systems”, world-renowned specialist in relational database theory, CJ Date.
Check out the rest of the post, all the reasons I think we need to be in-person, and a DISCOUNT code for WWDVC, here.
See you soon (hopefully)!
