Cloud Analytics Conference – London!

Next up on The Data Warrior speaking tour 2017 is the Snowflake Cloud Analytics Conference in London on June 1st!

CloudConference

Snowflake is kicking off this year’s Cloud Analytics City Tour with a blow out event in London, England. This will be a full day workshop style event where you get to hear and learn from industry veterans and thought leaders like myself, and the CEO of Snowflake Computing, Bob Muglia (to name just a few). In addition we will have a Practitioner Panel discussion that includes several of our customers along with other industry thought leaders.

The unique value proposition for this event is that in the afternoon you can choose from two tracks of in depth sessions related to implementing your BI solutions and your data warehouse in the cloud.

I will be presenting my talk Agile Methods and Data Warehousing: How to Deliver Faster. My highly seasoned colleagues from Snowflake (all industry experts) will teach you about loading data in the cloud, deploying BI in the cloud, and how to best use Snowflake to be successful with your cloud analytics program.

And of course there will be food, drinks, and networking.

You can find all the agenda details here along with the registration form. Use discount code DATAWARRIOR for 50% off the registration fee.  Sign up today!

This will be my first time ever in London, so if you are in the area, please come by, say “hi” and learn about the new world of Cloud Analytics.

Until then, cheers!

P.S. I will be in London the day before and after the event, so if you want to have a more detailed or personalized discussion of the benefits of cloud-native data warehousing, please reach out to me at kent.graziano@snowflake.net.

Want to Learn Something New in 2017?

Happy New Year everyone!

This is the time of year when we all make plans and set goals for the new year, right?

So what are you going to do different this year? How about grow your career by learning something new?

How?

  1. Read a book on an area of tech you are not so familiar with. Cloud perhaps?  My recommendation, of course, is to check out the new Cloud Data Warehouse for Dummies book I mentioned in my post last month. Or maybe one of my ebooks listed on the blog sidebar?
  2. Attend a webinar. My favorite user group, ODTUG, has a continuous lineup of FREE webinars through out the year. You can see the list and sign up here. (I will be giving one next week!)
  3. Attend a conference or meetup.  As I mentioned in my post on staying current, nothing beats meeting and learning from folks face-to-face.  Plan ahead, budget some time and training money to attend one of the many industry events that happen all year. For some ideas, check out my speaking schedule for 2017 with options around the US.

 

So what will it be? If possible try to do at least one of each – read a book, attend a webinar, go to a meetup!

Make 2017 a great year!

P.S. If you plan to attend any of my in-person talks, please drop me a line to let me know! And be sure to follow me on twitter or check my schedule periodically as I am adding new talks and locations all the time.
