Sessions should be progressive and forward-thinking in nature.  One of the goals of Azure DataFest is to encourage the growth of big ideas in data management.  Preference will be given to presentations that describe and demonstrate the potential of the technology to push boundaries, rather than deep dive or foundational materials.


Workshops are intended to be hands-on and demonstration oriented.  Presenters are encouraged to provide details on demos they'd like to show, especially if they can make those demos work with actual attendee data sets.
